Hi Tony,

I've tried using the zipped up source available from the download page,
and I've tried checking out the source directly from the CVS server. The
resulting source code does seem to be notably different between the two.
This means that when I open the cvsnt.sln from the checked out source I
get a number of projects that fail to open:


When I used the downloaded zipped source code, I only get that first
error (from lockservice.vcproj). 

So, using the downloaded source code, I made the following changes in an
attempt to build:

1) lockservice.vcproj
As mentioned above, this project fails to open. However, a little
investigation found that there was a cvslock.vcproj in this directory,
so I renamed this to lockservice.vcproj.

2) sqlite.lib
I also found that one project (cvsapi) wanted to link with "sqlite.lib",
however the file in cvsdeps was called "sqlite3.lib". I copied this file
so that both "sqlite.lib" and "sqlite3.lib" were available, but were
infact the same file.

3) forcebuild.txt
In an attempt to reproduce identical binaried, I created
C:\forcebuild.txt with the contents "2382"

I now get errors every time it runs Make Manifest:

Please contact the application's support team for more information.

The cvsnt build also has an error in the Make Manifest:

not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

It not vastly different to what's listed.  What I do is checkout cvsnt,
checkout cvsdeps, set the paths include/library paths, then compile.  I
can usually get a clean machine compiling in 20 minutes, but then I've
done it dozens (possibly hundreds) of times...

What errors do you get?
