Thanks, this is much clearer now. Here under I commented some of the replies

I think this is better as this gives a svn aware version only. For missing
files I still needs to use the command line solution as I only want to
prompt the user for diff information and not to bother them with the SVN

Ok, but in my case I am sure that these files will not exist. Is there away
to turn the looking for TortoiseProc.exe off (by option)?

Yes, you don't know if the files will compile or are correct. I mostly patch
files (xml) that don't need to be compiled. Of course these files still
needs to be valid, but I want to check this with continous builds, instead
of locally on my computer. So this may protect user, it also limited in
certain cases.

Again thanks

Ok, then I use both clients. One client that can be used from command line
and GUI woud be great though.
