You misunderstood me--there was a problem that Tortoise wasn't passing 
the set temp path information to CVSNT before, so people weren't able to 
set their TEMP path to something that made sense to them.  I believe 
that it was that fix from the previous version that may have broken your 
setup.  If you didn't have appropriate permissions set up, or a bad temp 
path, then it would cause this to appear.  Check those out if you can:  
Make sure the c:\windows\temp path exists and you have full permissions 
to it, change your TEMP environment variable if necessary, etc.
