I think that's the same error. I have the German version of Vista
Ultimate here, so I had to translate the error from German.

Just tried with https://sandboxsat.googlecode.com/svn/ and it works for
me here (I'm asked for authentication - that's of course as far as I can

Do you have all Windows updates installed? Not sure if that matters, but
I'm always up-to-date with those and as I said, it works for me.

Oh, just a thought: disable virus scanners and firewalls. Just last week
we had another nasty problem due to the virus scanner in our office
interfered with http requests without any notification.
And no: I don't use any virus scanner. I'd rather have a virus which
hides perfectly so I won't even notice it than have a virus scanner
interfere with everything I try to do :)
(just in case someone asks: no, I never had a virus: I do a weekly check
with a special live-CD just to make sure)
