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.

Installation is done like this:
- find the file cvslock.exe in the CVSNT installation dir
  (if it is not there then download the binary files from cvsnt.org)
- create a command prompt there
- execute cvslock -i
  this installs the lock service
- now add this entry into the config file in your repository:
- comment out any line with LockDir settings
- commit config back to CVS

This should do what you want.
