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.

I have no idea what's going on in the winsxs folder, but I understand that there are plenty of opportunities in there to basically destroy the operative system. So I didn't keep up with the experimentation.

The very first hit on Google for "tortoisesvn" plus your error message
suggests reinstalling the appropriate VC2008 SP1 Redistributable (32
or 64 bit). Have you done this?
