Your initial claim, that removing the log files made the repository
inaccessible, sounded extremely unlikely. As far as I can see you
have now discounted that, and you are left with a simple "Subversion
doesn't work on my Windows platform".

As far as I know other people are using Subversion and Apache on
Windows, but I don't do it myself so I can't really help. If you
describe your system and setup more fully it is possible someone will
recognise what you are doing wrong.

That simply shows that the client cannot communicate with the server,
you will get the same error if Apache is not running. To get more
information you will need to debug the server (or possibly the client
over ra_local).
