Im new to your software. Installation and setup went pretty smooth.
The problem is, that when i try pushing/pulling/cloning from a repository, i get this message:

"abort" HTTP Error 500: unknown command 'between'"

Happens from any type of client program and also if i run from cmd.

    Which version of Mercurial (hg version) are you using?

    Thats a good question, i only installed the HgLab from your site (version 1.1.0). How do i find out what hg version im running?

    Dont know if this matters, but i have an installation on the same machine of TortoiseHg (version 1.1.1), see the attached screen of that (if it helps).

    HgLab is completely independent of Hg/TortoiseHG and uses neither internally.

    Mercurial 1.6 is really old and this is what causes problems: old versions of Mercurial use, well, old communication protocol which HgLab does not currently understand.

    Is it possible for you to upgrade to a latest version? You'll get a lot of niceties besides being able to interact with HgLab.
