No, I have no experience with that unfortunately.

I might add that the setup file I posted before starting this thread
was actually flawed in the security settings part. If the checkbox was
checked the installer bombed....
I fixed that error later, so the one now posted will work for both
Apache, IIS4 and IIS5. But as has been reported back to me from a user
with Windows 2003 and IIS6 it does not work completely on that
platform. What is missing are two items:
- Permission setting for two new usergroup ID:s on a couple of dirs
- Registration of a "Web Service Extension", new with IIS6

I have added the permissions thing on my yet unposted installer, but I
don't know how to go about the extensions. Since I don't have a W2003
PC I cannot do any testing myself. :-(
I will probably post some user instructions on the website that deals
with the manual after-work needed, like I did for NT4 (no longer
needed though).

While i am at it I can also mention that the CVSMailer program is now
available in version 1.4.1. The major new thing is that it is now
possible to get live links in the email to an Issue Tracker ticket. It
requires a certain syntax in the commit log message and a web based
issue tracker.
I have just started using Roundup (open source) for that and it was a
request from my developers to add the link to the issue in the commit
message such that they could minimise the message typing by
referencing the issue itself...
