Externals for a single file - usage?

From: Neil Trodden <neil.trodden_at_gmail.com>

The need to use external to bring in a single file to my working copies
arose today and fortunately this was implemented in 1.6 - which I've now
upgraded to.
The problem I have is that I still get an error when updating with my new
external property set. I'm using the same format I use for bringing in
external folders but perhaps I need to do something else? I'm afraid the
latest version of the svnbook only mentions that single file externals are
possible but no specifics on implementation.

I have a web application checked out as a working copy. From the root of
that checkout, I have a folder called Website/bin into which I wish to drop
a shared library file into. The bin folder itself is not in source control
but it's parent "Website" is.

So the file I want is:

svn://ls1/LVGSharedLibrary/tags/stable/LVGLibrary/bin/Release/LVGLibrary.dll
- which is a valid url - and it needs checking out into the folder
"Website\Bin" relative to my working copy

I've added the following line to properties for the root of my working copy:

svn://ls1/LVGSharedLibrary/tags/stable/LVGLibrary/bin/Release/LVGLibrary.dll
Website/Bin/LVGLibrary.dll

..and it fails.

Am I doing something wrong?
