My behavior is basically the same as yours except that once I commit the
file it goes from being "Mod binary" to "file" (non-binary). It's as if
WinCVS is sending the right command, but CVSNT is ignoring it. CVSNT is also
ignoring the command even if I issue it directly on the server from my CVSNT
client at the command line.

Would you be willing to share your wrappers file with me? I'm just curious
if there's something essential missing from mine.

I'm thinking I'm experiencing a bug in version 2.0.12 and that you're ok
because you're on a more recent version on the server.

Very odd - thanks for your help.

I am also having this problem with *.class files.

No matter what I do, I can not add *.class or *.psd files as binary files.

I have the following in my cvswrappers file on the server:

*.gif -k 'b'
*.jpg -k 'b'
*.doc -k 'b'
*.xls -k 'b'
*.mpp -k 'b'
*.pdf -k 'b'
*.zip -k 'b'
*.jar -k 'b'
*.ppt -k 'b'
*.psd -k 'b'
*.class -k 'b'

I have tried adding files from a GUI client (WinCVS) and also on the server
using the CVSNT command line (and I am specifying binary at the command line
as follows: cvs add -kb *.class).

We are running CVSNT 2.012 on a Solaris server.

Any suggestions?
