Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

Looks like you are running old software. Please reposrt the versions
of both the client (WinCvs) and server (presumably CVSNT).
Also note that this list is about issues with CVSNT, it seems like you
are reporting problems with WinCvs. This product has its own list...
