Hi András,
if an application is using the explorer "file open/close" dialogs, which almost any app does, even a backgrounded Outlook will indirectly have a handle open on the TortoiseSVN dlls. You can try to close outlook & retry the install, but you can also ignore & install and reboot your PC so that the correct TortoiseSVN dlls get loaded.
BTW: Do you know any friendly Hungarian that would like to maintain the Hungarian translation of TortoiseSVN? Nudge, nudge ;)

        Subject: vista install problems



        I have 1.4.7 installed, and it noticed me that 1.4.8 is available. Downloaded (MSI), tried to install.

        I have Hungarian Windows Vista Business.


        The image tells itself: unlike under WinXP, where it works silently, the install tells me to close Outlook (I have 2007) which is "not running" (only in the background somewhere), windows explorer (blah! and an impossible thing, since it restarts automatically), and so on. The best is, that I have to close TortoiseSVN status cache ;-)


        In case of 1.4.6 ŕ 1.4.7 I could solve it by manual uninstall (control panel), restart, install, restart. If this is the only way, then I expect the installer to do it silently:


        - Welcome! Since you are using Vista, the process will be painful and take a while. Now, please make a coffee and enjoy while I uninstall the software.

        - (restart, then upon logon the installer automatically starts)

        - (install as usual, maybe restart thereafter, if required)


        Or, if it solves (didn't try): ask the user to start the process as Administrator.


        Thanks for reading. If any further questions, I am available at this e-mail address.


        Best regards from a content user:


        András Triznya
