/path/to/file is within \tmp\trunk, yes?

Could you show us the commands you used to create \tmp\trunk? I
presume you intended for \tmp\trunk to be a working copy, but
Subversion doesn't think it is for some reason, so let's find out why.

It should just be as simple as (Unix syntax; sorry, you'll have to
convert mentally to Windows)...

cd /tmp
svn checkout url://to/repository/project/trunk # check out a new
working copy
cd trunk # go into the new working copy
touch new-file # make a new file
svn add new-file # add the new file to version control
svn commit -m "Adding new-file" # check in the new file
