It should work. but because they're executed on the same computer that
you ran the svn command (maybe even the same cmd session) from things
can get odd. Have you tried calling exit without the /B switch?

In a "normal" environment, this should be a non-issue, as you'd have
an actual server where the hooks execute.

For completeness in the archives (and those who can't/don't wish to go
to the URL above), the transcript follows:

C:\>mkdir \testsvn
C:\>mkdir \testsvn\repos
C:\>cd \testsvn\repos
C:\testsvn\repos>svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs /testsvn/repos
C:\testsvn\repos>cd \testsvn
C:\testsvn>mkdir source
C:\testsvn>cd source
C:\testsvn\source>echo This is a readme file.>readme.txt
C:\testsvn\source>svn import file:///testsvn/repos/somemodule -m
"Imported somemodule"
Adding readme.txt
Committed revision 1.

C:\testsvn\source>cd \testsvn\repos\hooks
C:\testsvn\repos\hooks>copy con pre-commit.bat
echo Commits disabled! 1>&2
exit /b 1
        1 file(s) copied.
