Additionally to Peter's response I have one more item you want to change:
- Open Windows Explorer
- Select Tools/Folder Options
- Select the View tab
- Go down the list until you find the checkbox named "Use Simple File sharing (Recommended)"
- *UNCHECK* this item!
What this "recommended" option does is that it enables the crippled way of
file and folder sharing with no permission checking that is used in Win98....
With the box unchecked you get the proper NT way of handling permissions.

Subject: [cvsnt] cvsnt setup
hi, I'm a beginner to cvs and windows so my questions should be simple to
answer hopefully and I appreciate anyone's help in advance.
I have 3 PCs (all windows XP pro) connected together through a router which
connects to the internet. I want to use one of the PCs as the CVS repository
(lets call that one serverPC) and the other 2 PCs as the clients. Following
the installation tips from http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/InstallationTips I
created the c:\cvsrepo and c:\cvstemp on serverPC. Now my first 3 questions
are more of windows XP question.
1) how do I change the security settings for cvstemp to allows full control
for all accounts including SYSTEM.
2) how do I create a group called CVSUsers on serverPC and how do I add all
the CVS users as members of this group.
3) in the installation tips it says "login as administrator and right click
on c:\cvsrepo and select properties. Click on the 3rd tab for permissions,
and give full control permissions for CVSUsers and SYSTEM accounts", however
when I right clicked on cvsrepo there was no 3rd tab for permissions, so how
should I do that?
If it's possible, if somebody could walk me (with some details) through the
windows XP setup on serverPC before I actually install cvsnt, it would be
I still have more questions about the setup but I'll wait till after I did
