Running hot-backup.py on Windows Server 2003

I am trying to install an automated backup for our subversion repositories,
preferably at each commit.

My system configuration is as follows:
- Subversion 1.1.3
- Windows Server 2003
- Python 2.4 (with C:\Python24 added to the PATH environment variable)

I download hot-backup.py from
I then modified
svnlook = "@SVN_BINDIR@/svnlook"
svnadmin = "@SVN_BINDIR@/svnadmin"

to be
svnlook = "svnlook"
svnadmin = "svnadmin"

However, I cannot run this file successfully. I always receive the following
error. Does anyone have a clue how I might be able to resolve this problem?
D:\svn\biddefordbottle does exist. As does D:\svn_backup

D:\svn\biddefordbottle\hooks>hot-backup.py D:\svn\biddefordbottle
