Re: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL

You cannot directly access 1.5 repository files by 1.4 client using
file:// protocol. The repository format differ from what the 1.4 client knows.

1.4 clients can communicate with 1.5 servers over the network.

Either update your client to version 1.5, or set up your Windows PC
as server and access it by a network protocol, for example by svn://
one.

Maybe users_at_subversion is the list to ask further questions
if you have them. This is dev@ list.

Also, do not miss the following:
