Probably because you are trying to update a network resource which the
Subversion service has no permission to update? Under Windows, services are
[typically] executed by special local accounts, which do not have access to any
networked (drive-mapped) resources. The batch file works as an ordinary user,
because you have the appropriate drive map and rights to use the remote
resource. The Subversion service cannot execute the same script because it
doesn't have the drive map and if you added the 'net map' to the script, the
service user would not have the rights in any case.

What I do for our Windows servers is to install Cywin's sshd (SSH daemon), and
then use SVN::Notify::Mirror:


which I wrote specifically to permit complex update rules in a post-commit
script (I use SVN::Notify::Config so that the script is the config file).
