  • Installing TortoiseSVN – why to close Firefox?

    I just installed the latest TortoiseSVN Client (v1.7.8) for windows from this mirror here. In the installer I was asked to close Firefox to proceed. Why so? It made me nervous – does TortoiseSVN have anything to do with a web browser that I am unaware of?

    TortoiseSVN integrates into Windows shell, and applications that use the open/save dialog are an obstacle for the installer’s intention to restart the shell.

    There is nothing special about Firefox. The same can happen with Notepad.
