You need to create the folder ON THE CLIENT with a dummy file, then use the cvs command to create a module. DO NOT DO THIS ON THE SERVER! The error you are getting indicates that the CVS server cannot find its control files - and those don't exist yet because you BYPASSED CVS and created the file/folder directly. Creating the module on the CLIENT with the CVS command will do everything it has to. > -----Original Message----- > From: Patrick Mast, WinFakt!
