Hi all! Just a small additional hint: I prefer to create a new module using WinCvs because it (usually) automatically detects which files are binary. This is important if you put projects of an IDE (e.g. Visual Studio, Metrowerks, etc.) under CVS control, because the master file (which contains the info about which files belong to the project and their dependencies) is usually of a proprietary (binary) format. Hope this helps.

The server is a server and *nobody* should do any work on that. All operations can and should be made from client workstations, including adding new modules to the server repository. There are at least two ways to do this: 1. The standard way (cvs import) This you do from WinCvs Create/Import module... It will grab all files in the selected directory plus recurse into all subdirectories and add these files too. 2. The cvs add way To use this you need to be in a valid sandbox. To create a top level module you must check out the module . (that is a period) and set the flag for no recursion. This creates a sandbox on the top level. Then move your source directory tree to this sandbox and use cvs add on the folders and then on the files inside. Rather tedious work but you have full control. You can also use Oliver's recursive add macro to ease the work. /Bo On Thu, 26 Sep 2002 17:21:09 -0400, RLMuller <RLMuller at comcast.net> wrote: >Hi All, > >I want to add a Visual Studio project to CVSNT installed on a Win2000 Advance Server OS.

I read something in passing that I should always add new projects from the server rather than from a workstation to avoid problems with CRLF translation to and from Newline.
