You need to do exactly what the error message tells you to. Changing
log messages is disabled by default in the repository. You need to set
up a pre-revprop-change hook in the repository itself (directly on the
server, you can't do this remotely). Look in the repository hooks
directory and you should see some hook templates. At the simplest
level you can create pre-revprop-change.bat with content

@exit 0

which will allow anyone to change any revision property. Look at the
templates to see how to restrict who can change revprops.
