The installer of version 1.6.10 (and 1.6.8) of TortoiseSVN has a bug that leads to an incomplete update. You must run the installer a second time and choose the second time the ‘Repair’ option for a proper upgrade. One of the symptoms of an incomplete installation is an exception when trying to compare office files due to missing Diff scripts in the Diff-Scripts directory.
