Because you're inside the repository directory, you can't reference it
by its name. svnadmin is looking for c:\svn\mmc\mmc with the path
you've passed it. It MIGHT work if you run this:

svnadmin load . < dump_mmc

But I wouldn't recommend it.

Get the dumpfile out of c:\svn\mmc (maybe move it to c:\svn instead)
as that's supposed to be your repository directory and nothing you
create directly should be in there except svnserve.conf (optionally)
and hook scripts. Then run this:

svnadmin load c:\svn\mmc < c:\svn\dump_mmc
