    When trying to make a directory in SNV via the command prompt, you get this error:

    svn: E205007: Could not use external editor to fetch log message; consider setting the $SVN_EDITOR environment variable or using the –message (-m) or –file (-F) options
    svn: E205007: None of the environment variables SVN_EDITOR, VISUAL or EDITOR are set, and no ‘editor-cmd’ run-time configuration option was found

    This is because there is no default editor associated.

    To fix this, run this command:

    set SVN_EDITOR=c:windowssystem32notepad.exe
