waiving my resolution not to touch the former SVN server setup
until we got an alternative program working and in the hope that
some renaming should not harm the Apache/SVN setup I tried the

1) stopped Apache;

2) moved existing SVN 1.0.6 out of the way by renaming to svn-

3) unpacked Brane's 1.1.3-2 zip file into e:\prg\tools\svn;

4) started Apache => failed;

5) renamed e:\prg\tools\svn to e:\prg\tools\subversion;

6) adjusted all paths (%path%, httpd.conf etc.) to reflect 5);

7) started Apache => runs;

8) checked with browser: SVN 1.1.3, but, much to my surprise,
Apache 2.0.50, not 2.0.52 as on all machines here. Somehow this
box must have escaped the update cycle in October or so.

9) stopping Apache, reversing folder rename back to "svn" and
Apache would not start again;

10) once more renamed everything to prg/tools/subversion and
everything runs again.

I won't update Apache on that machine now just to see, rather I
might downgrade mine to 2.0.50.

Of course with that intl.dll now necessary for SVN there is but little
chance - I really don't expect Intel to support processors older than
two or three years, that is before P4. Nor will this be of much
interest for you anymore for the same reason.

With the folder name I can only assume that somewhere the path
gets into conflict with the <Location /svn/> directive.

Freedom quote:

     If concern for human poverty and suffering were one's primary motive,
     one would seek to discover their cause. One would not fail to ask:
     Why did some nations develop, while others did not?
     Why have some nations achieved material abundance,
     while others have remained stagnant in sub-human misery?
     History and specifically the unprecedented prosperity-explosion
     of the 19th century would give an immediate answer:
     capitalism is the only system that enables men to produce abundance -
     and the key to capitalism is individual freedom.
