We include ViewVC in our CollabNet Subversion distribution and install
and configure it for you automatically. This is a problem I have run
into. I finally figured it out so included it in our readme. Here it

7. Known issues

   When trying to access a repository via ViewVC, you might see an error
   trace that ends with this message:

      ImportError: DLL load failed with error code 182

   This error occurs when you have an older version of the OpenSSL DLLs in your
   PATH ahead of the CollabNet Subversion bin folder. Many Windows applications
   ship the OpenSSL DLLs and many of them also use older versions. To fix this

      1. Edit your PATH so that the CollabNet Subversion bin folder is at or
         near the beginning of your PATH.
      2. Reboot so that your Apache service can pick up the change.
