Hi all

I had this same problem... updated to latest TSVN
(TortoiseSVN- and after a reboot was getting
error messages from Comodo firewall and even WinSCP about libapr_tsvn.dll
missing (app has failed to start because libapr_tsvn.dll was not found, etc)
- although both Comodo and WinSCP worked okay. However, Tortoise SVN wasn't
working at all - no icons or shell context menus etc.

I fixed it by doing the following....

Use latest beta version of 7Zip from http://www.7-zip.org/download.html to
open the TSVN MSI installer with.
Extract TSVN.cab
Open TSVN.cab in 7Zip
Extract F_libapr and F_libaprutil files
Rename them to libapr_tsvn.dll and libaprutil_tsvn.dll respectively.
Cut+paste the two DLLs into the %ProgramFiles%\TortoiseSVN\bin dir.

I then re-ran the TSVN installer and chose the Repair option.

After a reboot, everything was fine again :-)

Hope this helps.
