Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I also tried this as the first real idea that I was given after I posted the
same problem weeks ago. The error message now disappeared. But I'm not
completely satisfied with it. I assume, that there is still a bug in cvsnt.
A RCS-file should never be located locally.

Is there any information about .history,v available? On
http://www.cvsnt.org/manual/ I could not find any. What excactly is it used
for? Under which conditions will it be created and filled with which data?

Any information welcome

Does your client machine have D: mapped as a CDROM drive?

If so, try putting a CD in the drive :).

What seems to happens to us (we have our repository on
D:/cvs also) are some cvs client operations form paths to
repository files and try to open them, on the client side.

On my work machine I moved the CD to E:, leaving D:

Converting the server to use the repository prefix will fix these
messages too.
