# Windows Client Service User Profile: Can't determine the user's config path

Hello!

We are attempting to run svn info against a working copy as a
service user on Windows Server 2019. The user in question has never
actually logged onto the server, therefore there is no existing user
profile for that user.

We were previously using svn.exe from the 1.7 branch; we noticed that
r1546814 (https://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&amp;revision=1546814)
is included in 1.10 and it looks like it would solve the problem
entirely and upgraded to that version, however we find that if we use:

svn info --non-interactive --trust-server-cert D:\my\path\to\wc

as the user without a profile we get the following error:

svn: E125001: Can't determine the user's config path

Are we right in thinking that r1546814 was committed in with our exact
usecase in-mind? I'm not sure if it's a change under the way that
Server 2019/Windows 10 does user profiles for service accounts.
Presumably, Line71 in r1546814
(https://svn.apache.org/viewvc/subversion/trunk/subversion/libsvn_subr/config_win.c?view=markup&pathrev=1546814#l71)
must return OK whereas it didn't in previous versions/a different
scenario?

Thanks,
Rob
