I should have noticed that the dialog asks for the repository address.
But semantically this seems backwards.
The project files that I want svn to keeps tabs on were in e:\testproject
Originally e:\svn\testproject had no 'project' files in it.
My assumption was that the e:\svn\testproject dir, the repository, needed to have the project files imported into it...else it has no useful content.
I reversed my steps as you suggested and there were no errors. But, neither are there any of my project files in e:\svn\testproject, the repository, as far as I can see. If a project file was e:\testproject\readme.txt, am I not supposed to find a readme.txt somewhere in the repository?
But something must be really wrong with what I'm expecting. I can't imagine send a file out from e:\testproject to e:\svn\testproject as an import; that'd always be termed an export. And since I don't see anything from the project, it does seem that nothing was imported or exported.

Your repository is at e:\svn\testproject and your files are at
e:\testproject - but you are using import as if they were the other way
So - if the last sentence is changed to read:
Use tortoisesvn import command by right clicking e:\testproject, select
import, point to file:///E:/svn/testproject
That should do what you want.
Once you've imported the files, you will then want to checkout the
files, to create a working copy.
