Hello, I am using the cvsnt latest and greatest for my cvs server, and wincvs on my clients. I had a user add a binary file to the repository, and then try to commit it. But, the file was open by another app causing a sharing violation and then the commit hung. He canceled the commit by killing the process with the task manager. Problem #1: It left the lock files in the repository which denied access to the directory via the client. My solution: Deleted the lock files on the cvsnt server machine. Problem #2: After the lock files were deleted, I tried to commit the file again, and it *still* hung (I think the repository was confused). My solution: Deleted the file.ext,v in the repository, then used the wincvs client to re-add, then commit. This seemed to work. Is there a better way to do any of this? I have a funny feeling that I am mis-managing my repository and I don't want to mess anything up. Thanks for helping! -Anna-
