You're using SVNParentPath, which means that apache expects
C:\SVN_REPOS\test_svn to be a directory which *contains* a whole bunch
repositories. So your 'svn copy' command makes no sense, unless you
happened to 'svnadmin create' a repository called 'trunk' within the
'test_svn' directory. I'm sure you didn't do that, though. :-)

Assuming that you did an 'svnadmin create c:\SVN_REPOS\test_svn', then
'test_svn' is a lone repository... so you want to use the SVNPath
directive, not SVNParentPath.
