Installing AnkhSVN on Vista

April 2, 2008

For those who does not know about AnkhSVN, it is a free Visual Studio .NET addin for the Subversion version control system. It allows you to perform the most common version control operations directly from inside the VS.NET IDE.

I was trying to install AnkhSVN on my office laptop, which currently running on Vista OS and has Visual Studio 2005. After setup was complete successfully I started the VS.NET and received this below error.

I initially thought it as problem with having two versions of Visual Studio (2003 and 2005) which I had. I removed VS 2003, but still received the same error.

I found this entry, which will help you to resolve this issue.
