I hope that what I am doing is not too stupid ;-)

I am in charge of the developpement of a web based application.
Since we are a team of programmers, we decided
to use a software to help us developping our product properly.
Two months ago we tried CVS...
Server side : CVS NT (on windows NT 4 neither unix nor linux I am sorry ...
therefore no "patch" command available...)
Client Side : WinCVS 1.3 (on windows 2000)
This software was for us one of the best product that is why we decided to
install it on a real server
and to deploy WinCVS on 4 PC's.
I am not used to the open source projects...
I am really sorry if I don't know how to "patch" the server :-(
I am a newbie...

Finally, my question was how can I remove an edit on a file ?
But now my question is how to use a .diff file !
Can I use the file you gave me directly with the cvs.exe I have ?
Is there something like the "patch" command under windows NT ?
Do I need the CVS sources to make this .diff file working properly ?

Best regards,
Eric Gambardella
