Can't get project from subversion

I am trying to get a project from a subversion repository.  I receive the following error:

 

Cannot initialize a repository

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Is that the exact error message?  What are the steps you took to get there?

Do you have local write access to the local directory?

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

It's my local system.  The privileges are set to rwx

Re: Can't get project from subversion

I meant more within the OS...  TestComplete/Subversion needs to be able to create the folder/directory structure for the repository... it could be that you don't have access to do so.

Re: Can't get project from subversion

On a Windows 10 system, how would I determine if I have the appropriate privilege?

Re: Can't get project from subversion

TestComplete via SubVersion needs to be able to create the local directory... so, if the user that you're running TC can create the appropriate directory or run the necessary sub-version command lines, then you should be good.  You can try running TC as an administrator and see if that works.

Re: Can't get project from subversion

Also note, that svn doesn't like spaces in directory names. This is why I have asked about URL. So if you have a path like "file:///C/My repository", upgrade it to "file:///C/My%20repository"
