That's why Bo's instructions say to reboot--and I've told others the same
thing.  What you're seeing is consistent with my observations (and others

Tony--Could it be a matter of the CVS control panel applet not knowing where
to find the CVS EXE, and therefore depending on finding it in the path?  I
know it loads it's protocol DLL's from that directory too, but I would think
that the control panel applet would know to look first in the directory
where *it* was run from.  Does that make sense?

It's just a little thing--1 reboot and you don't have to worry about it
again, but I see the question come up a lot and if there's an "easy" way to
fix it then I think it should be considered.

Actually cvsnt NEEDS the path-setting.

When I try to create a repository when the path is not yet set (using the
cvsnt-GUI) I get the message
"Repository initialisation failed. To see errors, type the following at the
command line:
 cvs -d d:/CVS/cvsrepo/Test init"

When I do this (type this at the command line from cvsnt's folder) it seems
to work.
It also works when the path environment variable is set properly.

A small additional info:
I just checked and : writing the path to the registry (both positions) does
NOT update the system path, even if I broadcast WM_WININICHANGE.
