pto> I think, I have found a Bug in the Setup TSVN, Version 1.5.x:

pto> When installing TSVN, the user, who shall use TSVN in future, is

pto> TSVN is installed, after restart everything works fine.

pto> When you now take the admin-rights from that user, TSVN does not work any more.

pto> The menu-items are visible in the explorer, but when you try to

pto> the cause is that TSVN cannot reach the following dirs in the registry:
pto> hklm/software/TortoiseSVN
pto> hkcu/software/TortoiseSVN
pto> and possibly
pto> hklm/software/TortoiseOverlays

  I'm working with 1.5.5 as non-admin (the admin rights were
  temporarily granted to the user for the time of the TSVN
  installation process) and experience no problems with TSVN. System:
  WinXP pre-SP3 (the Service Pack 3 never could install itself for
  some reason, but all updates after SP2 are installed).
