You created the repository at E:\svn\testproject, but you try to import
into the working copy (e:\testproject).
You have to right-click on e:\testproject, then use 'import' from there.
In the import dialog, enter file:///E:/svn/testproject as the target URL.

Of course, you know that file:/// access doesn't have anything to do
with your xampp installation?
