you probably better read the Subversion book first: HYPERLINK
You can't manipulate the repository with mkdir etc. directly, svn uses a
or a datafiles backend to store all your files and changes.
These are the steps you probably should follow:
1. create the repository with "svnadmin create c:\svn\repos"
2. create a working directory "mkdir c:\workingdir"
3. link the working copy with the repository: "svn checkout HYPERLINK
"file:///c:/svn/repos"file:///c:/svn/repos c:\workingdir
4. add your files in the working copy
5. tell subversion that the added files should be versioned: "svn add
6. commit your changes to the repository: "svn commit c:\workingdir"
Your best option is to read the documentation first, if you're only working
on Windows
have a look at TortoiseSVN ( tortoisesvn.tigris.org ). It's a graphical
shell for Subversion
integrated with explorer.
have fun,

Subject: Need help



I am currently a new user of subversion. My experience is very limited on
using any version control software. I have installed the following version
on my laptop (OS: Windows XP):



So I can see that it has created a directory under c:\Program

Under the bin directory I can see the svn.exe, svadmin.exe, etc.


I have a sample project directory in C:\Example\Common\Schematics with two
files (X.sch and Y.sch) that I want to put under revision control.


This is the procedure I used:

1. Create a repository directory in c:\Program Files\Subversion

svnadmin.exe create “c:\Program Files\Subversion\repository”

2. Then I used mkdir to create the Common and Schematics directories

c:\Program Files\Subversion\repository\Common\Schematics

3. Then I try to import the two files (X.sch and Y.sch)from
C:\Example\Common\Schematics by

typing from the c:\Program Files\Subversion\bin directory the following:

svn import c:\Example\Common\Schematics file:”c:\Program
Files\Subversion\repository\Common\Schematics” –m “Initial import”


I get the following error:

svn: Error resolving case of ‘file:c:\Program


What is the correct syntax I need to use? Please advice.
