I don't think you'll have much success there. You need to
replace this path with a path on your system and '\some\path'
might not be what you expect it to be there. So, just use it
with a real path on your system like "D:\temp\repos" or a
folder in your home directory.

BTW: on MS Windows machines, I'd definitely install
TortoiseSVN, it's a very good SVN client and it also allows
creating repositories.
