Re: problem running svn command

Am guessing about how you are getting this message - that is what you
are invoking/running when you get it but it sounds like a path problem.

Check you %PATH% variable to make sure subversion is in the path
You should have something like:
C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin
in the path variable for it to be found from the command shell.
