Where should the temp folder be but hardcoded? Randomly chosen
It is located in a config setting that you reach via the Control Panel
applet on the Server Settings tab. After you have verified its
location (well outside the Documents and Settings tree!) you can set
any permissions needed on it. I use C:\CVSTEMP in my case and I have
given full control to everyone plus SYSTEM.
