All, After some more investigation, I have discovered that I can add *.psd and *.class files as binaries, but what I can't do is replace existing ones that were added improperly as non-binary files. In other words, I can do a CVS remove on one of my corrupted binaries. I then commit the removal. Then I drag a fresh non-corrupted version of my binary to my working copy and I select "Add as binary" in WinCVS. So far, so good (shows up as "Mod binary" at this point). I then commit, but the file shows up as "file" not "binary." Is there something special I need to do when removing these corrupt files before CVS will allow me to re-add the files as binaries?

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. >And I have *not* fiddled anything with any cvsrc or cvswrappers file >to get this basic behaviour working, it has always worked and probably >will always work. Would you be willing to share your wrappers file with me? I'm just curious if there's something essential missing from mine. >In this case I am running an old client against a newish server (Win >2000 Server): >Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.12 (client/server) >Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.38 (client/server) 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?
