Heh.  I think I'm going to grow a batch file for this thing.

Has anyone tried running a build slave as a Windows service?

This is a machine that another developer (who normally uses Windows) set up, 
but he hasn't been using it for a while.  So I poked around a bit and... it 
doesn't look like he's installed Subversion on it.  It really has been a 
while since he's used it!

I'll try installing Subversion and see if that helps.  ;-)
