Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I had my developer install WinCVS 1.3, now attempting to initialize a new
repository, this error is given:

cvs -d :pserver:sford at init
cvs [server aborted]: Protocol error: Root request missing

The /test repository has been created and initialized...

The init command is typically issued from the server with the control panel
applet.  I can't comment specifically on the error, but it doesn't look like
you're trying to init on the server (init doesn't work remote, remote init
has been discussed previously on this list).

btw:  Nice snapshots.
