follow the wiki, use regular svn. also just to be sure, you are trying to check out the libs for a 32bit build with msvc2015/2017.
if that's what your plan was, that's alright,however if you were planning to build a 64 bit build (recommended) check out win64_vc14
instead of windows_vc14. the libs are a couple of gigabytes and having to do it twice is sometimes problematic for people on
metered connections, so be sure to pick the right ones.
