WinCvs version If you don't use the latest version then please download and install. There has been an update options tab on the dialogue that comes up when you click the update button for a long time now. Help/About in my WinCvs shows version as 126.96.36.199 Beta 13 (Build 1) CVS version Using the command cvs ver (from WinCvs inside a sandbox) shows something like this: Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.0 (client/server) Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.2 (client/server) Typing cvs --v on the command window in a non-cvs folder: C:\>cvs --v Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 188.8.131.52 (Daily Snapshot Build 57l) (client/server) As you can see in my case the command window uses a different version of CVS than WinCvs. This is because in WinCvs the CVS.exe to use is defined, but on the command line it comes from the path setting. CVSNT If you get versions like 1.11 or something similar then you should go to www.cvsnt.org and download the latest 2.0 setup and install it. Update operation What cvs update should do is to replace the file already in your sandbox with the one from the server. This is normal. But if it detects that the file has been edited by you, then it automatically renames the edited file to something like: .#.originalfilename.doc.1.3 (where 1.3 is the revision your edits started out from). So your edited data are saved in a renamed file and the working file will hold the old revision. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Raghuram Nanda [mailto:raghuexcels at rediffmail.com] Sent: den 10 juni 2003 10:31 To: Bo Berglund Subject: Re: RE: RE: [cvsnt] Problem retrieving doc files Hi Bo, Reply for your earlier mail: I followed the steps mentioned by you in your earlier mail.(There wasn't any Update Options tab, but Sticky Options tab). What the CVS does in this case is, it is replacing my LATEST checkedout file instead of writing a new file of name filename.#.verno How to achieve the same? Your help on thie regard will help me greatly. Reply for your recent mail: The CVS client which I use gives me cvsnt1.11 version. Regards, Raghu. How to achieve the same? Your help on thie regard will help me greatly. On Tue, 10 Jun 2003 Bo Berglund wrote : >If you issue the cvs update command on the command line then >you >can forget about my comment.
