Excuse this off-topic, but I am thankful to somebody had east problem that
says to me like solving it.

CVSView had installed on a Win2003 Server, IIS6. In theory, it does not use
RCS tools, use directly cvs.exe, as it indicates on installer of Bo

When it is tried to browse a module, it generates east error:

Python Traceback
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\CVS\ViewCvs\lib\viewcvs.py", line 2467, in main
File "C:\CVS\ViewCvs\lib\viewcvs.py", line 335, in run_viewcvs
File "C:\CVS\ViewCvs\lib\viewcvs.py", line 1132, in view_directory
request.repos.dirlogs(request.path_parts, file_data, options)
File "C:\CVS\ViewCvs\lib\vclib\bincvs\__init__.py", line 160, in dirlogs
alltags = _get_logs(self, dirpath, entries, tag, subdirs)
File "C:\CVS\ViewCvs\lib\vclib\bincvs\__init__.py", line 783, in _get_logs
raise vclib.Error('Rlog output ended early. Expected RCS file "%s"'
Error: Rlog output ended early. Expected RCS file

I thank for suggestions,


Ariel Machado.-
