You have to add your config file to the msi yourself. TSVN does not ship
a config file in the installer.
But maybe using the registry might be easier if you want to adjust the
msi yourself. See here for what registry keys you can use:

The svn library automatically creates that file if it doesn't exist.
That's hard coded in the library, you can not change or interfere there.
