First problem: on Windows, never use the MSI installer as a "last
resort". ALWAYS use the packaged, binary install if there is one!

Next, did you copy libdb42.dll from the Subversion "bin" directory to
your Apache "modules" directory? That's an easy one to miss, it's
documented in the W32notes.txt in the Subversion install directory. Make
sure you read that whole file as well.
