Below are my two attempts: C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\cgi-bin>cvs -d /c//CONVEX add -m "temp fil e: delete this" EditCaseWorkSiegShafi.pl cvs [add aborted]: /c//CONVEX/CVSROOT: No such file or directory C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\cgi-bin>cvs -d c:\CONVEX add -m "temp file : delete this" EditCaseWorkSiegShafi.pl cvs add: CVSROOT must be an absolute pathname (not `c:\CONVEX') cvs add: when using local access method. cvs [add aborted]: Bad CVSROOT: `c:\CONVEX'.

Also, adding only marks a file for addition.
