I think I've just hit the same problem. There was some discussion about it earlier this month but I didn't pay attention as it worked ok for me. However I now have a problem that may be caused by the fix in 2.0.50 for the original problem: Previously I was running Server 2.0.41, Client 2.0.41a and WinCVS 184.108.40.206. With this everything was ok. Yesterday I upgraded to WinCVS 220.127.116.11, which includes Client 2.0.51. Apart from the annoyance of loosing the default CVSROOT, everything seemed ok at first. Just now I checked out our project and found that the file security permissions were set so that I could not execute the build scripts. Previously all the files just inherited their permissions from the parent, so 'Everyone' got Full Control. This has now changed so that 'Administrators', 'Domain Users' and 'Everyone' has Read and Write permissions only. Nobody has execute permissions. Is this due to an incompatibility with the Server 2.0.41 and the Client 2.0.51? Will upgrading the server to 2.0.51 at the same time as the client fix this problem? Is there some other setting I've missed? Both the client and server are running on Win2K, no *nix involved at all. I have now gone back to Client 2.0.41a and it now goes back to the previous behaviour. (I just copied the dir from a colleagues machine, didn't re-install or re-register anything. Is this ok?)
