Since I don't have a SVN server installed and hence a command line, I couldn't generate a dump file, so I tried to install Subversion. After installation, TortoiseSVN couldn't connect to the repository on localhost, giving an error message "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it."

What URL were you previously using to access your repository? Unless
it started with file:// then you must have had a server installed
already. localhost sounds very much like an http:// connection.

Nope. TortoiseSVN is just a client. It does not install a server at
all. Since 1.7.0 the TortoiseSVN installer will optionally install the
subversion command line tools within the {Program Files}/TortoiseSVN
folder, but that is all it does. It does not create a service or
anything like that. You must have done this yourself.
