You need 3 slashes for file (file:///).

You may also want to use regular slashes (/) instead of backslashes
(\) so it isn't accidentally interpreted as an escape character. I
just tested both \ and / as directory delimiters in Windows and it
handled it OK, but you can use / everywhere and svn will be OK with

svn import c:\temp\proj file:///c:/svnroot/repos --message "blah"
should work for you.
