Please check the setting of environment variable APR_ICONV_PATH.
It shall point to the directory where all your iconv - libraries
are installed. But be aware, there may be incompatible versions
coming around with Subversion and TortoiseSVN (my experience). So
the variable must point to the correct directory.

Best Regards
Christian
