Hello John,

I am using TSVN with exactly that Vista edition and the overlays show up
fine.

However, I have not installed any other third party software displaying
overlays (as far as I know at least).

I suggest studying these:

If in doubt I suggest to deinstall TCVS and TSVN. Then install TSVN.
Maybe after installation reboot twice, not only once. And if they still
don't show up go to software control panel and choose to repair the
installation. That did the trick for me with when upgrading from the
previous to the current version.

You should probably install the TortoiseXYZ variant you plan to use
mainly first, to improve its chances to fall into one of those limited
number of overlay icons slots before the TortoiseXYZ variant you use
less. Always keep these limited number of overlay icon slots in mind
when trying to analyze malfunctions.

With best regards
