RE: Windows based installs

Yep, that would be where I got it from.

Subversion is installed to "C:\Program Files\Subversion". In the bin
directory, I have copied SVNService.exe so that is side by side with the
SVNServe executable. To install the service, I ran:
        svnserve.exe -install "C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\svnserve.exe"
"-i" "-r" "f:\SVNRoot\Norwescon"

If I try to start the service, I get the popup dialog of
     Could not start the SVNService service on Local Computer. Error 193:

And the event log message of:
     The SVNService service failed to start due to the following error:
     SVNService is not a valid Win32 application.

If I run SVNService -debug, I get the following:
     C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin>SVNService -debug
     Debugging SVNService.
     Setting working directory: C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\
     RegQueryValueEx failed with error 0, type 1
     Running command: "C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\svnserve.exe" "-i"
"-r" "f:\SV
     ( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) )

Pressing Ctrl-C shuts the service down with:
     Stopping SVNService.
     MessageLog (Event ID -1073741820): "

I don't see a corresponding entry in the event log for this. The
interesting bit of information in this is the call to open the registry
failed for some reason.

I assume you got SVNService from here: http://dark.clansoft.dk/~mbn/
svnservice/. Following the sparse instructions there, I had no trouble
running SVN as a service on a Windows 2003 server at my office. Please post
the locations in the filesystem of your SVN install and your SVNService
executable. Also, please post the steps that you took to install and run the
