I think you are right about them not heavily promoting their
64-bitness... :)

Take a look at


and do a search on

tortoisecvs 64-bit

... and you will see that 64-bit is even supported in the current stable
1.10.10, although as I said, I am running ("unstable", but
works fine for me).

Looking at what got installed in the filesystem and the registry, it
looks like they tried to do what I do with my Shell extensions (and
occasionally annoy Stefan with here) - install both 64 and 32 -bit
versions, so that nobody says "I don't see my overlays/menus"! ;)

Unfortunately, it looks like the registry entries for 32-bit got hosed,
so the 32-bit extension DLL, even though present, does not have the
correct registry entries.
