Re: Getting Subversion to run as a service on Windows 2000

Thanks for the information. I was going to try to use
the svn1click installation to see if that would help.
However, I've been given permission to blow away Win2K
and load Linux. I think this will solve this issue
and help with a multitude of other issues. I'm tired
of fighting the Windows registry everytime I turn
around and since we are using all OSS software, it's
just easier to run it on Linux where the instructions
and support are so much better.

I did look at Firedaemon, but we can't use it because
it's a commercial app and would require jumping
through a bunch of hoops to acquire it. :(
