I have upgraded to cvsweb (build 57c) from a very old version. My
problem now is that cvsweb refuses to let me download any of the documents.
It reports the error:
Error: Unexpected output from cvs co: The name specified is not recognized
as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Check whether the directory d:/cvs/CVSROOT exists and the script has
write-access to the CVSROOT/history file if it exists.
The script needs to place lock files in the directory the file is in as

cvs -dd:/cvs co -p -r1.2 "/nvdb/dok/prosjektordliste.htm"


Has the output from cvs co changed in any way from previous versions? Could
it have something to do with the cvsroot  (-dd:\cvs)?

Hope someone can help.
