I'm finally getting back to this issue. Things have changed a little so here's a recap and the current situation:

I have a VisualSVN repository on a development web server with a web site properly loaded. I checked out a copy with my client (Dreamweaver CS5). I also have checked out a copy that is served as the development web site on the same machine as the repository. So far, so good.

I have a post commit hook (post-commit.bat) with the following line in it (all one line and with minor changes to protect confidentiality):

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VisualSVN Server\bin\svn" --username SVN_User --password therealpw update D:/websites/site1

After editing a file in Dreamweaver, I commit the change to the repository. The repository credentials saved in the Dreamweaver configuration are the same user and password as used in the batch file above. The commit seems to work and does not generate any error messages in the VisualSVN Server Event Log on the web server. A new file is created in db/revs/0/. However, the hook is not being executed, or if it is, it is failing without generating any error messages in the Event Viewer.

When run from the command prompt, the batch file executes without any problems and the development web site shows the update (another indication that the commit worked, obviously).

Any ideas? Is there any way to increase the logging level of VisualSVN so that it's logging everything that happens? Is there any log other than that shown in the Windows Event Viewer?
