bzrw.exe doesn't start on Windows 7 x64

Asked by Ken Halprin on 2010-11-03

Just downloaded "bzr-2.2.1-3-setup.exe". Ran the install without a problem (used default setup options except for the shell extension and a couple of plugins). When I run bzrw.exe it churns for a second then nothing. Same thing happens when running as Administrator. Bzr.exe appears to run OK - it spits out usage information.

Any ideas?

I found the problem after reading a similar question posted by Andir. The Launchpad plugin must be installed. Here's the entry from .bzr.log when trying to run bzrw *without* launchpad installed:
