I know that they have a fix for those old versions. Maybe not on their
website, but they once had the fix for those versions there.
Just send them a mail, describing your problem.

I've tried to debug the problem once. Problem was, without the
sourcecode I couldn't see why Powerdesk crashed. All I could see that it
crashed even though all data filled in by the TSVN context menu handler
was valid, no pointers to invalid data, no NULL pointers, nothing.
That's when I contacted their support, and they had a fix ready within
two weeks.
