Ah hah! Here is what I have done: (1) I edited my system path variable and moved c:\Program Files\cvsnt to the beginning of the path variable (ahead of all the cygwin directories) and rebooted. I don't know if this helped. (2) I created a new test repository using the init command. This step is documented in the chm file but it is extremely confusing! The documentation gives the example of "cvs -d /usr/local/cvsroot init". When I saw that for the first time, I assumed I was supposed to be using cygwin/bash and use forward slashes. That is an extremely bad idea if the cygwin cvs client is incompatible with the CVSNT server. This time I specified cvs -d c:\TESTCVSROOT init. Previously I used the command cvs -d /cygdrive/c/CONVEX init from the cygwin/bash prompt and it seemed to work. (3) I use the service control panel to add the new repository. This time, I take the default name making the name "/TESTCVSROOT" and the root "C:/TESTCVSROOT". Previously, I made the name and the root identical because I did not know what I was doing because I never saw the documentation on this step. This step seems to be missing from the cvsnt chm help file. (4) I create a temp directory and import 3 files. I then check these files out. (5) I used cvs -d :pserver:Siegfried at 192.168.0.8/TESTCVSROOT add makefile.g77 and it worked! I used a commit and it worked. I edit a file, save it and checkin worked! Hurray! This has been a brutal struggle! Now, here is my question: can I salvage my original repository that I created with the command "cvs -d /cygdrive/c/CONVEX init"? I've tried using service control panel to change the repository name from C:/CONVEX to /CONVEX. Of course, at this time, I abandoned the /c//CONVEX syntax in favor of the /CONVEX syntax. When this did not work either, I used the service control panel to switch the name of my repository back again to C:/CONVEX and tried to use the /C//CONVEX syntax. I can sure think of a lot things that would improve that documentation in the cvsnt chm file.

In my eyes this looks like a bug. Siegfried, you said, you've changed your repository name from C:/CONVEX to /CONVEX, but that it did not help. When you made that change, did you also make a new import and a new checkout of your module?
