Jacques,

Your suggestion made good sense. Thanks for forwarding, and I've pasted it
below:

You would most likely need to link the the exact location of the python
binary and the svnlook binary. For example if your svnlook binary is located
in the C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\ folder, you would need to use
C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\svnlook.exe for the file it needs to execute.
Also you are going to need the exact location of the python binary.

Now, I seem to be having problems calling the svnlook.exe correctly. I
surrounded it in quotes (tried both single and double), but still have an
error:

"Commit failed. Pre-commit hook failed with error output:
C:\Python23\pythonw.exe: can't open file 'C:\Program
Files\Subversion\bin\svnlook.exe'

Is this a "Windo-ism?" Can't figure out why this is a problem. I am able to
run svnlook from command line (as same user/credentials) as expected. I'm
not a batch file guru, so any additional thoughts you might have would be
appreciated.

Thanks,

Frances
