[Cvsnt] [CVSWebNt] Failed to spawn GNU rlog

I assume that the CVS executable is also in the SYSTEM PATH ?

I had a report from another user saying he needed to change "the IIS config
for the /cvsweb directory from medium isolation [which runs as IWAM_xxx] to
low isolation [which runs as IUSR_xxx]."

Where is your CVS repository stored?  On a shared drive, on a local drive
(as viewed from the server running IIS)?

Try putting cvs.exe, rlog.exe and diff.exe in the c:\winnt\system32
directory (to be sure...), and check the execute permissions.....

Anyone else have any ideas?

Regs,


Arthur

Subject: [Cvsnt] [CVSWebNt] Failed to spawn GNU rlog

Dear all,

     I'm glad to use the cvsweb for my winxp. I followed the steps in
 <http://www.devguy.com/fp/cfgmgmt/cvs/cvs_admin_nt.htm#CVSWEBIIS>
 But failed to access the modules list on the web site.

 That is,

 It works fine when the cgi is starting and list all modules in my
 repository. But when I want to see the details of each module, it shows
 "Failed to spawn GNU rlog"! What I did wrong? Please help


Here is the reply from Arthur:

security.

CVS

>Note: if you change your SYSTEM path you MUST reboot your computer.

I'ad done the second step as he told me. But still, it won't work and
show
the same message as above. I'm in deep trouble, no clue at all. Please
help.

Thanks in adv.
