Here are the commands I ran on a Windows machine to synchronize from a 
remote repository:

svnadmin create c:\user\work\repos
cd c:\user\work\repos\hooks
echo exit 0 > pre-revprop-change.bat
svnsync initialize file:///user/work/repos
svnsync sync file:///user/work/repos

This ran just fine with SVN 1.6.  Can you run something similar on your 
Windows machine and let us know what results you get?  Run the steps in 
a new directory, not in the repository you just created. Note that the 
source repository in my example is served by Apache, so it uses a 
"http:" prefix. You would want to use a "svn:" prefix if you are using 
svnserve access, as was implied by your original message.

Note that the destination repository is being accessed using the "file:" 
protocol.  The repository I created was not meant to be accessed by 
other users; it is intended only to serve as a backup. If you are trying 
to set up a write-through proxy then you will need something like 
svnserve or Apache HTTP on the destination repository.

Also, depending on your repository directory names, you may need to use 
quote marks around arguments.  I recommend avoiding space characters in 
your directory names for this test.
