Greetings all, I'm running CVSNT on a Windows XP box. I'm using Tortoise CVS as my client. I'm trying to setup a shadow directory to hold the latest committed versions of all files. So for example if I commit a file "/test/index.html" to the module wwwroot I'd like it to be copied to "c:\wwwroot\test\index.html". Ideally I'd also like to be able to have a specific branch go to a separate directory. So for example if I checked in "/test/index.html" to the "mybranch" version of the module "wwwroot" the file would be copied to "c:\mybranch\wwwroot\test\index.html". I've noticed a file in my CVSRoot called "shadow". I've tried playing around with this in accordance to the instructions contained within, but nothing seems to happen when I commit a file. I've also noticed there are 2 other similarly named files ".#shadow" and "shadow,v" which I'm assuming are in some way are related to the "shadow" file. What is the purpose of these files? I did find these instructions which seem related to the shadow file, but again, do not seem to work. http://www.cvsnt.org/manual/html/postcommit.html I apologize if this is a common question but I've done a lot of searching and reading and have not been able to find a suitable answer thus far. I'm also very new to CVS in general. Thank you for your time, I appreciate any help you can give. - Mike
