The 'svn.exe' and 'svnadmin.exe' in our nightly build folders are there
in case you find a bug in TSVN and want to reproduce it with the
official svn client (if it happens there too, then the bug is in the svn
library and I have it easier to find the reason or come up with a
reproduction recipe for the svn guys).

To use those, you must copy them into the TSVN installation folder
(usually: C:\program files\TortoiseSVN\bin) and run them from there.

If you want to 'upgrade' your existing svn client, then you have to
adjust the PATH env variable to not point to the original svn client
folder anymore but the TSVN bin folder where you copied the svn.exe to.

But I would not recommend that. Just use your original svn client.

And of course: we don't provide svnserve.exe or the *.so modules, so no
server updates from TSVN.
