Hello Jorgen,

sorry to interrupt directly.

I tried what you suggested to Alkee.

I mapped a network drive to q: where I created a "repositories"-directory using the
cvsnt service panel.
Afterwards I changed the account of the cvsservice to my personal account (I have
all rights on this network share).

Then I changed the settings in  WinCVS to
NEW CVSROOT: ProkeschP at mpk:q:\repositories (NT server services)

Now when I try to import the files I get
cvs import -I ! -I CVS -m "no message" test_sources avendor arelease (in directory
can't create temporary directory Q:\/cvs-serv176
No such file or directory

I find it very strange that my specified dir is ignored!
Any ideas?

thanks in advance,
