Install aborts if top level repository folder doesn't exist

I tried specifying a new repository location rather than using the default location – something like “c:\Foo\repository”. The problem was that the “c:\Foo” folder did not exist. This caused the installer to abort, leaving a partial install with Apache running on the port I had selected. When I tried to reinstall, it complained that the port was in use, so I had to stop the subversionApache service and then continue with the install. The installer should probably detect that the top level folder does not exist and offer to create it or obtain a new one.

Hi Andre, thanks for report this issue. We will change the installer to check the repository directory exists before to continue the installation.

Kinds regards.
