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


something, I'm just not sure what.....

IIRC the windows CVS binaries don't have server capability built into
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
mode at all?

 [Kelly F. Hickel] AUGUGUGUGHGGHHGGUGHG! So, you're suggesting that
perhaps the windows binary can only operate in client mode?  I never
even though of that, I just *assumed* that it could access a local
repository.....  <sigh>

So, here I sit, waiting for someone who knows for sure.....

If someone in the know does not respond soon I would suggest trying:
[you need to figure out what the windows notation is for C:\play]
mkdir C:\play
cvs -d C:\play init
and if you get things created in C:\play\CVSROOT then it works.
