A component version required by the application conflicts with another component version already active. Conflicting components are:. Component 1: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\x86_microsoft.vc90.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.4148_none_5090ab56bcba71c2.manifest.

The very first hit on Google for "tortoisesvn" plus your error message
suggests reinstalling the appropriate VC2008 SP1 Redistributable (32
