Welcome to Subversion!

Hook scripts are only needed if you want to perform additional
actions at start-commit, pre-commit, post-commit, pre-revprop-change,
or any of the other points at which hook scripts can be run.

Some example hook scripts are written in bash, which is not available
on Windows unless you install Cygwin. If you want to use hook scripts
on a Windows server (or any other server), you'll have to write them
in a language your server supports. Windows supports VisualBasic
scripts, you can install Perl or Python or PHP or Ruby or any of a
number of other scripting languages if you prefer those, etc.
