I just downloaded the lastest CVSNT (version 2.0.34). I followed the install instructions (http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/InstallationTips). I can run the cvs command and get the various help pages its version etc but then I try and list files the service crashes with a dialog like this:
cvsnt service cvsnt service has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are
sorry for the inconvenience.
My environment variable is set:
and the command line I tried is:
cvs ls -l -R
after I dismiss the error dialog box I get this on the command line:
cvs [ls aborted]: Can't authenticate - server and client cannot agree
on an authentication scheme (got '')
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have other friends who are running this successfully on their XP boxes but for some reason I cannot get this to work on my machine. Here is what I have tried:
* uninstall and reinstall
* tried several recent previous versions
* turned off virus protection programs (both during install and while running)
All lead to the same crash.
