Yes, as the current wc root (file:///c:/repository/trunk/myProject) doesn't
exist in rev 167 the files cannot be found.
Either use
        svn cat -r 167 REPOURI/filename > filename
to get single files and diff them, use
        svn diff [-r N[:M]] [--old OLD-TGT] [--new NEW-TGT] [PATH...]
        svn diff [-r N[:M]] URL1[@N] URL2[@M]
        svn diff file:///c:/repository/myProject_at_167

(see svn help diff for details)
or checkout a separate (old) wc from the root (ugly!) and diff the directories:
        svn co -r 167 file:///c:/repository/myProject

Renaming folders - especially introducing /trunk/ - always makes diffing their
content back in history (before the rename) ugly, naturally.
