I Can't remember ever seeing that.  It probably means that your search path 
is wrong - either during build or (more likely) when you exec.  ie: if in 
build it finds libxml2.lib in /cvsbin then you need to make sure that 
/cvsbin (or wherever libxml2.dll) is in the PATH first at runtime.

Just copy the binaries over the top of the existing install.  Tony's and my 
own dev machines usually don't have an actual 'install' of CVSNT on them, we 
just have the paths etc setup.

There should be a cvsnt.cpl file that you can just double click to start the 
control panel.
