Hey Bo,

cl.exe is the M$ C/C++ compiler.

If it's trying to compile info.c it must be specified
as part of the project.  I'm not familiar with building
cvsnt or wincvs but whatever you're using for a makefile
probably has (read 'has') a reference to it.  Likely, 
one of 2 things have occurred.  Someone has removed the 
necessity for file but didn't remove the dependency on it 
(easy for you to fix locally) or some has added the need 
for the file but forgot to check it in (not so easy for 
you to fix locally).

Additional info:
When I do a build all I get this in the output window a bit above the
final error:
fatal error C1083: Cannot open source file:
'F:\Engineering\Projects\cvsnt\src\info.c': No such file or directory

I have tried to check out the file info.c from src, but when using the
browser in WinCvs it appears that this file is not in the repository,
yet somehow it is referenced in the project. How can I proceed?
Should I try to grep this file name and delete it from whatever file
it appears in?
Note: I am not a big VC6 user, in fact I use it solely to compile
cvsnt and wincvs, so I am not at all familiar with the configuration
or project files or wherever the list of source files are kept.
Grateful for any help here.
