Turn it on and set up auditing on absolutely everything under c:\cvstemp. Then do whatever to reproduce the error. Check the security event log, and you should find out what caused the permission denial. Most usefully, the file path, the process that caused the problem, and the type of access requested are all logged. filemon, from http://www.sysinternals.com/, will do similar things in a nice neat Windows package. Freeware, and runs under XP. Best of luck, - Peter
