You need WRITE permissions for the repository even for seemingly read-only operations like checkout. The reason for this should be obvious from this error message: > cvs server: failed to create lock directory for `d:/cvs/vss2cvs/mbcc' > (d:/cvs/vss2cvs/comproj/#cvs.lock): Permission denied To prevent other users (who may be carrying out write operations) from modifying data while you are reading it, CVS must create a lock. By default, locks are created within the repository. > Any advice? Read the documentation about the LockDir parameter in the config file. This parameter instructs CVS to create its locks in another directory hierarchy, hence allowing read-only file permissions in the repository.
