Trouble getting Mercurial Repository to show up in FogBugz

I have set up a Mecurial Repository in fogbugz through Admin > Source Control. I am not using Kiln.

After following the instructions I was instructed to commit something to make the repos show up in fogbugz. However, after doing commits from both Tortoise and the command line I still can't see a repository.

How do I diagnose what is going wrong?

I am running on windows and tried placing my in a couple of places. I put it in the Tortoise folder then edited my hgrc as follows:

# Generated by tortoisehg-config
changegroup = python:c:\program files\tortoisehg\
host =
baseurl = http://xxxx:8000/

I also tried putting it in the root of my hd and changed the changegroup line to:

changegroup = python:/

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Apologies for not doing my homework. I just found the solution in this post:

I am having this exact same problem.  How do I format 'path' on windows for the .py file?

Here's how I formatted the path in my .hgrc file:

changegroup = python:C:\Program Files\TortoiseHg\templates\static\

Mercurial was able to cope with the space in the file path.  It might be that this was a bug in Mercurial that has since been fixed.  Here's what I'm running:

TortoiseHg (version 0.9.3)
Mercurial-1.4.3, Python-2.5.4, PyGTK-2.12.1, GTK-2.16.1
