 So no help?

I guess tortoisesvn can't be installed on Windows 2000 Pro.

Everyone raves about this software - but no one seems to know how to
install it on a W2K Pro Stand-alone system - not on a domain -
Administrator's account - Windows installer enabled - Never has Norton
installed - Stopped/started the installer services - ran the MSI clean up
tool - looked in and set entires in gpedit.msc and secpol.msc - UAC was
tried enabled and disabled.

Does ANY one out there have a version that actually works on this
version. Or even better yet has a compiled version that does not need

Pointing to Google and saying the solution is there...Is NOT helpfull. I
have look at over 50 pages an tried all solutions listed before I tried
asking the first time. Having now looked at over 200 differnt post I


This software is no darn good other wise.

Better yet - when is some one going to compile a mac/unix/linux

  Sorry tried that - I have already set - actually it was already like
  that.......- DisableMSI Type - REG_DWORD 0 = enable
  Never installed it before and looked thought all entried in
  Stoped and started the services.
  Did the whole run "gpedit.msc" ie: Computer Policy/ computer
  configuration/ administrator templates/ windows components/ windows
  installer..........select "disable windows installer". (actually it
  all orginally marked as "not configured") IT is now set to the
  "Never" option- indicates that Windows Installer is fully enabled.
  Users can install and upgrade software. Windows Installer is enabled
  by default on Windows 2000.

  I did all that - PLUS several others. I NEVER HAD SUCH PROBLEM
  asked for help. This is MY install on Windows 2000 Pro with service
  pack 4 and it is refusing to install due to POLICY that is not even

  There is SOME other issue - I just can't figure out.
