After reading your and Tony's emails, I decided to flush everything and start all over. I uninstalled VS 2008 from my machine altogether and deleted my entire 2_0_x tree, and did a complete checkout on it again. I then opened the soln in VS 2003 (Version 7.1.3088). I tried to compile the project in Release mode. First thing I noticed is that cvsapi does not have libxml2.lib as a dependency in the Release configuration; only in Debug. So had to add that in for it to compile properly. I also removed the oracle_database from the build configuration and removed it as a dependency from cvsnt project. Next I rebuilt the entire solution in Release mode. Went to a cmd prompt and tried cvs -version. Again it complained that it was missing libxml2.dll, so I copied it from cvsdeps/x32/libxml2/bin/libxml2.dll into the winrel/ directory. Once again it complains that it is missing msvcr80.dll. This time, I figured it might be something wrong with libxml2.dll. So I found an old copy of libxml2.dll and copied it into the winrel directory, and presto. This time I am able to get cvs -version to work. Does that mean that the copy of libxml2.dll that is in cvsdeps is the wrong one? Was that built using a newer version of VS? More testing to come tomorrow to see if I can finally get this up and running, but heading in the right direction. Although would love to know why the cvsdeps/x32 version of libxml2.dll isn't working. Tx, Eric _________________________________________________________________ Attention all humans.
