This answer on StackOverflow is only for Debian Linux and related

For some reason your regional setting on Windows are not correct.
Subversion uses 'setlocale(LC_ALL, "")' and if that fails,
'setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "")'. This should always work on Windows; I don't
know why it doesn't.


Are you sure you're using a native Windows binary of Subversion, not
something built for Cygwin or WSL?
