1) Make sure you installed the server component.  Seems obvious, but 
some people don't realize they need to install the client first then the 

2) If you did that already, or it still doesn't work, then I'd have to 
guess that something changed between RC1 and the release that broke the 
control panel.  Please advise if that is the case.

As a workaround:

You can edit the registry directly.  The important keys are in:

key	type	sample
Compat0_HideStatus	dword	0
Compat0_IgnoreWrappers	dword	0
Compat0_OldCheckout	dword	1
Compat0_OldVersion	dword	0
Repository0	reg_sz	c:/repositories/test
Repository0Default	dword	1
Repository0Description	reg_sz	Some Test Repository
Repository0Name	reg_sz	/test

There are others following the same syntax, see the *nix info for the 
string names and you'll figure it out.
