I'm attempting to set up a Subversion source control provider, and am receiving an error-

"Unable to connect. Can't determine the user's config path"

I've tried using SVN command line, and get a similar error-

"Unable to connect. svn: E125001: Can't determine the user's config path"


  • Windows Server 2008R2 64 bit
  • Subversion repository is across the network. Subversion URL is set as
    This URL works fine from TortoiseSVN repo browser.

Hi Pat,

Based on the error, it sounds like the subversion client (svn.exe) can't access the %userprofile% data.

What commandline client are you using? The one bundled with TortoiseSVN? I know that one can sometimes have issues with regards to storing user data.

The best bet is to try changing the credentials that the BuildMaster AppPool/Service is running under... or try a different svn.exe (or the one built-in to the extension).

Hope that helps,


I'm getting the error with both the bundled client and with Collabnet's Subversion client.

I'll into the credentials of the App Pool & Service.
