Okay...  I realised why SVN isn't installed here any more (it's because 
TortoiseGit can also handle SVN repos).

So I tried cloning, like so:-

     git.exe svn clone 
"F:\Test\lib\windows_vc14" -T trunk -b branches -t tags

and I see these messages:-

     Initialized empty Git repository in F:/Test/lib/windows_vc14/.git/
     Using higher level of URL: 
https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-blender/trunk/lib/windows_vc14 => 
     W: Ignoring error from SVN, path probably does not exist: (160013): 
Filesystem has no item: File not found: revision 100, path 
     W: Do not be alarmed at the above message git-svn is just searching 
aggressively for old history.
     This may take a while on large repositories

For a few minutes it seems as if things are happening but eventually it 
fails to fetch anything from 'trunk/lib/windows_vc14', giving me this 

     Can't create session: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 
     : Error running context: Software caused connection abort at 
/mingw32/share/perl5/site_perl/Git/SVN.pm line 184.

Any ideas anyone..?
