Doing hg in results in the following error:

abort: 'http://hg.XXXXXXX:81/hg/ZZZZ/WWWWWWWW' does not appear to be an hg repository:

However, using mercurial 3.8.4 works correctly.

    Is HgLab an abandonned product?
    Were we wrong about buying it?

    I'm sad. :(

    Thanks for reporting. I'm aware of this issue, but still struggling to find
    a fix.

    Please, update to HgLab 1.10.7. It's not yet publicy announced, so here is
    a direct download link:

    Does this only includes the fix and nothing else?
    Should I do a backup?

    Well, it's always a good idea to do backups when performing updates.

    There are several more fixes in this release, but none of them touch HgLab
    Home Directory. So theoretically you should be just fine.

    Installation failed.
    In the log there is an error: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.

    Further up there is:
    WriteIIS7ConfigChanges: Error 0x80070002: Site not found for create application
    WriteIIS7ConfigChanges: Error 0x80070002: Failed to configure IIS application.
    WriteIIS7ConfigChanges: Error 0x80070002: WriteIIS7ConfigChanges Failed.

    I told the installer to install into the existing IIS instance.

    Oh the dreaded MSI.

    Here's what you need to do. Go to the Internet Information Services Manager
    and delete HgLab Application Pool and HgLab Virtual Directory. And then
    retry the installation.

    I can also assist you ove TeamViewer, if that's at all possible.

    These are mostly minor optimizations, nothing of significance.

    Glad I could help you.
