This should be a pathname, not a URL (i.e. remove "file://" and just have

The syntax of the 'file' URL is "file://<hostname>/<path-to-repos>". It's
OK not to specify a hostname, but you still need all the 3 slashes before
<path-to-repos>: file:///e:/svnRepository

> 4) log message: --message 'Initial repository layout'

This last one is what's causing the "too many parameters": under
Windows, single quotes don't have the effect of quoting many words as a
single parameter - you need to use double quotes:

   --message "Initial repository layout"

Hope this helps,
