The quotes are not a problem. They're not needed, true, but they're
not harmful. I like being in the habit of using the quotes whenever I
can, so that I don't forget to use them in the rare cases when they
are required (when the item being quoted contains spaces).

Paths in the Apache conf should use forward slashes, not backslashes,
even on Windows. The line should read:

SVNParentPath "D:/svn"

I think the problem was probably that the backslash before the
closing quote was escaping the closing quote and causing it to become
part of the path, which was not what you intended.
