I've found that this error message masks a number of problems, some of
them are handled here:
the troubleshooting section.
The most common reason is that rlog is not in your path, you need to
download it from somewhere (http://www.gnu.org/software/rcs/rcs.html
has a win version I think). And then add the location to the PATH
variable in the .conf file.
Another reason it may not work is if rlog cannot see the repository (it
must be able to access the repository files directly. I was getting
the same error because the service that was running CVSWeb did not have
permission to access the repository (which, incidentally, was on a
network share). The solution in this case was to tell windows the user
to run the service as and use the share name in the .conf file.
