RE: Re: Tortoise Crashing when proxy not configured properly - not able to change it either

I have been deleting both sets of registry keys - I figured that they were copies, etc. However, this isn't it - - I still crash :-(

Also, when it crashes, it is a hard crash - no option to create a dump file - at least no dialog appears.

I have attached a screen capture of the registry. The password is a combination of special characters, numbers and letters, but obviously omitted.

Completely forgot about that: there are copies of those settings also stored in the registry under HKCU\Software\TortoiseSVN\Servers\global

Try deleting those too (also delete the other ones).

But again: before you delete those keys, please write the values down and send them to me (if your password is in there too, just replace it with XXX or something like that - I only need the raw data which makes it crash).

When an application crashes, a dialog pops up from where you can get the crash dump file.
