Using memcached on Windows with SVN 1.6

I am experimenting with some of the new options in 1.6 and I'm trying to
investigate any benefits using memcached may provide.

I am trying to get this running on Windows XP 32 bit with CollabNet
Subversion Server 1.6.9 (http://www.collab.net/downloads/subversion/)
and NorthScale Windows port of memcached 1.4.4 (

I am using both the CollabNet svn command line client and TortoiseSVN 1.6.6

I install Collabnet server, start the subversion windows service and create
a test repository using svnadmin at the command prompt.

I run the memcached.exe that comes in the NorthScale package (no command
line options. It is supposed to be listening on port 11211 by default.)

I navigate to the fsfs.conf file for my test repository and uncomment the
line "first-server ="

Now when I try to checkout my empty test repository ( using "svn checkout
svn://localhost/test C:\svntestcheckout" ) I get the message:

svn: apr memcache library not available

If I comment the line "first-server =" in the fsfs.conf file
back out, then I can checkout the repository.

I'm not sure what to do at this point. Am I missing a step? Is there
something extra that I need to make this work on Windows?

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you,
