Phil, I tried changing the repository root in the viewcvs.conf file as you suggested: from: d:\cvsserver\cvsrepo\wrk to: \ \servername\d$\cvsserver\cvsrepo\wrk But now I get an error where python can't find the files, even though I can browse the same path with Internet Explorer (I tried using the IP instead of the server name as well). Any Suggestions? We're using: Win2000 SP3 with IIS, cvsnt_220.127.116.11.exe 64, rcs57nt.zip, ActivePython-2.2.1-222.msi, viewcvs-1.0.dev-win-r2.zip (The \\ can cause HTML based EMail programs to change the output, so I put a space between them in this email) ((((ViewCVS/Python Error: ExceptionViewCVS Messages: \ \server1\d$\cvs_server\cvsrepo\cvs_wrk\ not found!The server on which the CVS tree lives is probably down. Please try again in a few minutes.

I had similar symptoms (tracebacks within ViewCVS, reporting problems with unknown error messages from rlog (from memory)). It turned out it wasn't actually a problem with the RCS fields output by rlog at all (ViewCVS has code to handle that already) - it was acutally because I had set the repository root to be "<driveletter>:\path\to\repository", and the extra colon was breaking it. I changed it to it to \ \<servername\<driveletter>$\path\to\repository and it's been fine since.
