I would like to get the latest CVS of emacs and compile it for Windows

what I'm supposed to do.

My (lack of) experience: I am an almost-total newbie to CVS.  I have
some experience using Eclipse to access and compile a CVS Java
project.  I have emacs 21.3.1 loaded and I also have MS Visual Studio
6.0 (not loaded).

You need a cvs client program. I am using the cvs program from the port but I think you should also be able with the eclipse
program. Important is the CVSROOT and that you are using the SSH. In
the following command the CVSROOT is
| $ export CVS_RSH=ssh
| $ cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvs-latest/emacs co emacs

I tried this and I get the following message:

cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot start server via rsh: No such file or

I tried both a command-line version in windows (where I used set
CVS_RSH=ssh) and also I tried using WinCVS.  Both gave me the same

What am I doing wrong?

Do you have a ssh program? You need a secure shell. My dark shot is
that you don't have one.

True, at the time I didn't. However, I got PuTtY and copied pscp to my CVS directory. I continued to get errors, but of a different sort:

Fatal: More than one remote source not supported
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

When I run pscp alone, I get this:

S:\CVS>pscp -r -v address@hidden:/cvs-latest/emacs S:\CVS\local
