RE: Hook Execution with SVNServe under Win2k3

Hey there again!

Let me answer your questions:

Yes. Since the batch file resides in f:\svnroot\hooks, it has full access
permissions over it. Since the redirected output isn't being created, which
happens regardless of whither or not the emailing script succeeds or fails.
However, I'm not seeing the output being created under the low-privilege

Right, this is a given. :) I've already verified that the low privilege
account can execute both the cmd (batch) file and the mailer script. I did
this by logging on as the account and manually firing off the batch file.
Also, when the SVNWorking instance on the Repository Machine was using the
file:// protocol, it worked just fine then as well.

Two things on this front:

1) I could never get svnservice to run or install itself as a service. The
OS kept telling me it wasn't a valid Win32 application. SVNServe is
presently being run a scheduled task by the Task Manager.

2) I'm dubious that it would work since the only privilege level I've found
that works with SVNServe hook execution appears to be admin access because
anything less and the post-commit hook never appears to run.
