In my case a lot of files (DLLs) are often being updated and the update rollout will be handled with TortoiseSVN locally. TortoiseSVN locally is a shell extension in Windows Explorer. So in this case Tortoise itself is not the program that should have updater rights. I have to give Windows Explorer updater rights, but this is not the prefered solution. Any ideas how I can handle my case?
you really should not add explorer.exe as an updater.
Have you tried to run AC in observe mode and then look at the events when doing the changes? Not shure but could it be enough to allow TortoiseProc.exe as an updater?
