I've tried to install TortoiseSVN (twice) in my 64 bit Windows Web Server 2008 RS installation, but the shell extention isn't showing at all. Anone knowing of a problem with shell extention in this version of windows?

The tortoise SVN site seems to be linking incorrectly to 32bit... – user68417 Jan 27 '11 at 8:36

This might seem like an obvious question. But did you install the 64-bit version of TortoiseSVN? 32-bit shell extensions won't work in a 64-bit shell. You also need to reboot the box for the shell extension to load.

I'm pretty sure I insalled the 64bit version and I've restarted. But I will try again. – Niels Bosma Mar 13 '10 at 9:11
