I noted the recent discussion on the missing dll:s in the 57g setup
and since I was just about to upgrade our production server to from 1.10.8 I got a bit worried...
Our server is a dedicated W2000 Server *only* running CVSNT and
CVSWeb, I got it from the IT department 18 months ago after they
installed the operating system, IIS and connected it to the domain and
Then I installed CVSNT, PERL and all the other stuff that is needed to
get CVSNT and CVSWeb running. At that time 1.10.8 was the version to
go with and it had a very manual installation procedure.
I seriously doubt that this server has any DOTNET specific libraries
or such on it, so whatever is not included in the installation will
not be there (unless it's part of W2000).

1) Will the install succeeed? Especially, will all needed runtime
libraries be OK?

2) What is the best procedure to follow considering that this machine
is running the cvs service from the ntservice.exe file?
Should I do as follows (which is how I see the procedure)?:
- net stop cvs (to stop the running service)
- ntservice -u (to uninstall the service completely)
- rename the CVSNT directory to D:\Server\CVSNT.old (just a
- execute the installation program for build 57g (custom install)
- make sure to change the install dir to D:\Server\CVSNT (system path
points here)
- Do any changes afterwards through the control panel applet
- start the newly installed service
