There is no "Technical support team". The vast majority of those who
provide help on this mailing list do so on a strictly volunteer basis.

You're going to need to put together a bit more information before
anyone will be able to help you solve your problem. Some of the
things you might look for to try to gather some more info:

1) Are there any other error messages that have been output which may
be of use?

2) What are you using for your Subversion server? There is actually
very little overlap between problems you might encounter if you're
running svnserve and problems that you might encounter if you're
running Apache.

3) Where did you find the "This application has requested..." error
message? What application was terminated?

4) Is this a problem that appeared on a working system, or has the
system never worked (it sounds like it was a working system, but you
don't say for sure).

5) If it was a working system, has anything changed recently? Was
any software installed? Uninstalled? Did any configurations
change? Was hardware upgraded? Did you have a power failure or
system crash?

Are you sure this is even a Subversion problem? You used the word
"browser" when talking about Subversion access, which makes me think
that you're probably using Apache as your server. With Apache as the
server, there is no "Subversion" application that runs on the server,
just the mod_dav_svn Apache module. Therefore, if there is an
application that is crashing, it is probably Apache. It's of course
possible that mod_dav_svn is causing the crash, but it could also be
a whole host of other problems that may be better answered on an
Apache specific forum (again, more information would help here.

I'm not really a Windows guy though, (more OS X/Linux) so others may
have a better idea where you can take a look.

Basically, you just need to try to include as much information as
possible when you post to the mailing list. There are a lot of very
talented, knowledgeable people who can help you here, but they're
also all very busy people who don't have a lot of extra time. The
more you make people guess at your problem, the more time it takes
them to get close to a solution, and therefore the less likely that
you'll find someone willing to help you out.
