I've installed cvsnt build 57i on my notebook under 
Windows XP Home Edition. Unfortunately, the test system had 
problems: sspi autorization didn't work due to no permission to 
standard TEMP directory from current user environment and pserver 
had problems due to no permitions to repositary:(

Unfortunately, I've failed to find out how to change permissions 
on WinXP:( I haven't done all the required RTFM though:) The only 
way I did find is to move both TEMP directory for cvsnt service 
and repository into so called 'Shared Documents' Windows XP folder:)

Unfortunately, the full path name of this folder is 'c:\Documents 
and Settings\All Users\Documents' and I wouldn't like to 
experiment with changing this. It's obvious that this doesn't 
work if the path names are not converted into 8.3 format.

OK, now my suggestion. All dialogs in CVSNT Control Panel applet 
get and store _full long paths_. So cvsnt server returns all 
possible kinds of strange errors (like 'and is not a valid 
command'). The only way to set correct pathnames is to edit 
registry manually:(

Thanks for reading so far:) My suggestion is simple: let all the 
dialogs in cvsnt Control Panel applet get and store short 8.3 

Thank you!
