For various reasons I want to make a windows copy of a repository that's

I end up with the same result. When using a downloaded windows binary of
1.12.13, if I do a cvs co it goes through all the motions, creates all
the directories and so forth, but none of the files are there.....

Any ideas?  I've seen various goggle results say that the repository
files always have unix style line endings regardless of the host
platform, and I've even tried going through every file and converting it
to dos style line endings with the same results.  So, I must be missing
something, I'm just not sure what.....

IIRC the windows CVS binaries don't have server capability built into them.
So the first question to get answered, from someone besides me, is can they be used in local (direct access to the on disk repository), :local: or :fork: mode at all?
