RE : TortoiseSvn MSI installer and Subversion Config file

Hello Stefan,

Thanks a lot for your precious help on that Subject.

For the new release of TortoiseSvn, I suggest the following enhancement request for Subversion Config file:
"Instead of having an hard coded config file, store the default config file in TortoiseSvn installation directory and force TortoiseSvnProc.exe (or TSVNCahce.exe) process to read this config file in Tsvn installation directory. Then deploy this config file in %appdata% directory".

Auf wiedersehen!

You have to add your config file to the msi yourself. TSVN does not ship
a config file in the installer.
But maybe using the registry might be easier if you want to adjust the
msi yourself. See here for what registry keys you can use:

The svn library automatically creates that file if it doesn't exist.
That's hard coded in the library, you can not change or interfere there.
