I think this is wrong. I think you are telling it to look for repositories in the myNet folder... but myNet is actually your repo folder. Try to change your command line to:

binpath= "C:\svn\bin\svnserve.exe --service -r C:\Respositories"

Then try to access it using:


Keep in mind svn is case sensitive, so you have to match the case for the repo name.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your quick reply.

The path of the repository in my server system is C:/Repositories/myNet (shared folder in LAN intended for multiple users).
The DOS command line I used to create the service -
C:\Program files\Subversion>
        sc create svn
        binpath= "C:\svn\bin\svnserve.exe --service -r C:\Respositories\myNet"
        displayname= "Subversion Server"
        depend= Tcpip
        start= auto

For starting the service, I started the server by giving 'service.msc' in the run command, double clicked on 'Subversion Server' and pressed 'Start' button.

I pinged the server. Its working fine.
Subversion is installed in C:/Program files.

Have you read the book on running svnserve and how to access the repository?


I really can't help you without knowing.

 1. The path on your server to the repository.
 2. The command line you used to start the svnserve daemon
 3. Also, can you at least ping the server?
