Without more details (specifics of what you tried, what you receievd,
and what you expected) it will all just be guessing.

If you can manually run svnserve then nothing had the port. I can
think of many reasons why:
1) There no installed service
2) The service is not set to run automatically
3) the 'automatic' service points to a missing exe
    (used the sc.exe command, or the services gui, to see what's there
-- and tell us)
4) The svn service is correct, but points to a non-existent svn repos
path (or there is someother error in the calling syntax) and thus
aborts.

Rather than keep guessing, you'd get better feedback with more details.
