I'm using cvsnt 2.0.4 on Win XP pro I'm getting "can't create temporary
directory c:\cvstemp/cvs-serv<some number>: permission denied" The cvstemp
directory exists and full control appears to be  given to all users. Any
ideas would be appreciated.
I typically add SYSTEM explicitly to my ACLs on NTFS--I don't know if it's
required, it's just habit.  Make sure that the permissions are applied to
the cvstemp directory itself.  You can review the SetACL script I put
together and posted to the CVSNT wiki, it might help--it describes how I set
up my cvsnt server.


Hope this helps.
