I have a question about WinCVS. 

Is there any way that the user is notified every time he performs a
"Commit" to perform an "Update" before doing that.

Eg: It may ask the user "Are you sure that you want to Commit? Did you
already performed an Update?"

This is a requirement we are having right now, because, in some cases
where there is no conflicts in the source files, there are chances of
overwriting the content.

Pls. respond me if any one knows the answer.

You have just made a local (to your machine) cvs repository.

Now you try to checkout a module from another site INTO your repository.
This is wrong!!!.

There are two ways I can think of to do what I THINK you are attempting
1) use a product like cvsup[1] to mirror the repository you want

2) do the checkout from the remote machine some where else and either
convince cvs to ignore the CVS directories, or remove the CVS
and either import or add all the files into your local repository.

method 1 may be easier to do and keep sanely synchronized, but if it
(and I
have not read the cvsup pages) requires a special program on the server
may be stuck with method 2.

This is because you have confused cvs by doing a checkout from an
repository into your local one. You should never do a checkout inside of

CVS on Server to use on Windows is most usually CVSNT:
CVSNT is the default client included with WinCVS and TortoiseCVS - which
are both excellent graphical front ends.
The mailing list for CVSNT is here:

        Subject: newbie question : regarding installation
        Hi everyone,
        I was thinking of using cvs for one of my projects. And i was
wondering if any of you got an advice as to how i would install cvs for
windows xp. There's a lot of web sites that recommend different
approaches in doing so. Since most of them differ in the software (i.e.,
cvsnt, putty, cgywin) involved in installing cvs, i get confused with
which is the best one to use. If you could recommend or suggest
anything, I would really really appreciate it.
        Thank you and Good day!
