RE: 1.7.x upgrade problem on XP SP3

Hi Stefan

Thanks for the information. I did reset Winsock following the instruction on the web. But it still did work with 1.7.2.

It just confused me why 1.6.16 working fine but not 1.7.xx? Looks like I have no option other than to step back on 1.6.16.

Recently I have tried many times to upgrade TortoiseSVN from 1.6.16 to 1.7.x ( tried all version from 1.7.0 to 1.7.2), but none of the was successful on this XP SP3 32 bits desktop. For other 3 machines, one with XP SP3 32 bit laptop and two with Win7 64bit, the installation are working fine.

The main issue here is the SVN can't connect to our repository server, but I can browse this server via folder explorer and also no problems with other machines and old version. The error messages shown like following when do updating:

"unable to connect to repository at URL 'xxx'
OPTIONS of 'xxx' : Could not resolve hostname 'xxxx':
Either the application has not called WSAStartup, or WSAStartup failed"

I'd very appreciate your helps to solve this issue, because I have network svn folders and all other 3 machines have been upgraded to 1.7.2 and this machine must be upgraded, too.
