Thanks for the quick response! Two questions:
1. What will the behavior be with the cengapi enabled but the cert
store dialog disabled? Will no UI pop up at all?
2. Is there a possible workaround by me using an older openssl DLL
from TortoiseSVN 1.5.3 with the newer TortoiseSVN?
Thanks for your help.
