Re: TortoiseSVN 1.5.3/4 exception for low-privilege XP account

Thanks Stefan. I took a closer look at the details of the shell32.dll
CreateFile event and I found these two properties:

Disposition: Open
Desired Access: Generic Read, Write Attributes

I'm not surprised that Windows (by default) disables write access to
shell32.dll for low-privilege user accounts. I don't think this is due to
any change that I made. I tried (temporarily) granting write access on
shell32.dll to my low-privilege account and then the (Open)CreateFile action
succeeded. However I still had the basic problem, which is that I get the
Tortoise unhandled exception dialog no matter what I do. I'm worried that
these Process Monitor events might be a red herring. For example, I have
found the first dump-related event, where GenerateErrorReport() creates
TortoiseProc.dmp. The event _before_ that is just a successful read of
Repositories.dat. I know that it is very easy to make the mistake of
finding something in Process Monitor that looks really serious but which is
actually completely irrelevant.

I think what I really need is more info about what causes the exception. I
have attached the dmp file. If you could give me any clue about what it
says I would be very grateful.

* Is Tortoise supposed to work with a low-privilege XP account? (And how
come it worked for me at first?!)
