Yea, I've never been able to use spaces in the modules file - looks like WinCVS requires that the module file have all avaialble modules. . .it would seem to me that the modules file is more of a 'shortcut' file that allows you to 'alias' module names in a way. For example, if I am working with customer ABC, and I have their code in: home/repository/Customers/SpecificData/ABC I can put a line in my modules file: ABC home/repository/Customers/SpecificData/ABC and then can check out like this: cvs co ABC and it works fine. If there's a space anywhere in the directory name, it doesn't seem to work. As far as the lock file works, we've set a LockDir in our CVSROOT\config file, and then allowed complete access to that directory for every user,a nd this works great. >>> Glen Starrett <grstarrett at cox.net> 9/30/2003 10:44:02 AM >>> At 09:20 AM 9/30/2003, Yang, Judy Bin wrote: >VersionControl is my CVS root.

Also, the modules file you list wouldn't be necessary if you're using cvsnt for the server--which version of cvs are you using on the server? > > > > > 2.

Make sure that is turned off, and that all cvs users have full permissions to add / delete files in the repository. I documented my permissions setup at http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/SetAcl for reference. Hope this helps.
