"Creating a service" does little more than adding an entry to the Windows
registry. I'm not quite sure how svnserve changed between 1.3.x and
1.4.x such that "now svnserve can always be run as a service". It
always was able to run as a service.

Here are my notes on how to install 1.3.x as a service. I would image
that these still apply to 1.4.x.

15. Download the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools from
        http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&DisplayLang=en. (This url may or not remain
16. Create the directory C:\bin. Add C:\bin to your path.
17. Execute and install rktools.exe.
18. From C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools copy files
        instsrv.exe and srvany.exe to C:\bin.
19. Create the service
20. Go to dos
21. 'instsrv svnserve c:\bin\srvany.exe'
22. Get the message:
                The service was successfuly added!

                Make sure that you go into the Control Panel and use
                the Services applet to change the Account Name and
                Password that this newly installed service will use
                for its Security Context.
23. Run regedit
24. Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\svnserve
25. Create a new 'Key' called Parameters
26. Add string value 27. Application=C:\Program
28. Add string value
29. AppParameters=-d -r C:\svnrepo
