RE: windows: svnserve as a service won't launch

Thank you for your response.

The service is installed as "Subversion Service", set to run automatically.

When I ask for the properties, I get this in the "Path to executable" field:
"C:\Program Files\CollabNet Subversion Server\svnserve.exe" --service --root "\\Srvmcs11\Data\Ontwikkeling\ontw\subversion"

svnserve.exe is found in C:\Program Files\CollabNet Subversion Server
The path specified with --root is reachable when typed in file explorer.

Everything is running as the domain administrator account (which has full rights everywhere), so I don't think rights are an issue.

Logging-wise, all I get is the following in the system log:
"The Subversion Server service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."

Met vriendelijke groet / With kind regards / Bien vous

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.
