It doesn't handle the upgrade automatically, unfortunately (mostly
because I'm not very good at installshield & can't work out how to do
it).  The repository configuration is the same.  If you do 'ntservice -u'
before starting it'll be smoother, however you're not forced to use the
cvsservice.exe unless you want a feature that's not in the ntservice.exe.
You could install cvsnt in a directory somewhere and copy the executable
files to the correct destination and it'd probably work.
