Just installed Tortoise SVN on my Win 7 64bit PC and I'm getting the following error when trying to import a folder to the repository:

"The PROPFIND request did not include the requested cersion-control-configuration  value"

The repository server is Win 2k8 64bit machine.

Any ideas?

What is the Tortoise version? What is the repository version? You should select compatible ones.  Are your other folders which are in the repository working correctly?  Do other repository users have similar problems?

I'm using version 1.8.4 both on the client and server.

At this point all folders in the repository are giving the same error, I've fought with this for song I've problably screwed it up beyond all recognition :)

I was just contemplating un-installing from both the server and the client (only one client at the moment)

I'm a little confused about which file to download for the server side install, is it the same file a the client?

What do you mean by "file for the server side install"? The server must have Subversion software installed and I would recommend version 1.8.5 (http://subversion.apache.org/). You may download binaries here: http://subversion.apache.org/packages.html#windows
I am using CollabNet version.

Tortoise SVN is just a client and you may download it here: http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads.html 
(Read the release notes before installation.)

You should be able to access the subversion on the server via web browser as the first step then you may install Tortoise SVN on clients.

I've never used Subversion client line interface.

Thanks for your help.

It's been a while since I used svn so I'm trying to remember how it all works, I guess I should RTM :)

I'm actually using Visual SVN Server and it looks like it was an old version and my local Tortoise client was the latest, so, I just downloaded the latest version which I beleive includes Subversion 1.8.5 and everything now appears to be working great

Thanks again for the tip :)

Good it is working.

And yes, the Visual SVN download contains the Subversion obviously, so the latest version should contain 1.8.5.
