This is a repository command, not WC command, as file://* are URLs,
not WC paths.
If "D:\MyArchive" is your repository directory, then try something like:
svn mv file:///D:/MyArchive/proj1 file:///D:/MyArchive/trunk -m ".."
svn mkdir file:///D:/MyArchive/proj1 -m ".."
svn mv file:///D:/MyArchive/trunk file:///D:/MyArchive/proj1/trunk
For this you don't need a working copy at all.
