Right you are! It is a good feature to hide the drive letter from the
But don't use whatever the control panel tells you, use your
imagination instead (the control panel applet is broken in the beta
release, but now fixed by Tony for the next release, I checked by
compiling the source and it is now good).
Basically the Prefix will be added up front to whatever root comes
along to CVSNT from the client. Then it is compared to the RepositoryX
entries in the registry. So if you have Prefix set to F:/ and connect
using /SCM obviously the full root will become F://SCM which does not
compare to the Repository0 entry and is not existing on the disk
But if you change the Prefix to F: and use the same client root then
you are just fine...
