Hello, I'm a light cvs user for 2 years and recently tried installing a cvsnt server on a local winXP machine, but am having problems with binary files. So far I've had this problem with both .xls files and .mat (matlab binary data) files: I have both extensions listed in cvswrappers, but the files when checked back out are corrupt. I add the files using the -kb option, but they're still corrupt when I check the files out from the repository. Sometimes the files are so corrupt that the excel/matlab refuse to read them. Sometimes the software can read them but the data has changed slightly. I've never experienced this before! Even without cvswrappers, add -kb should always work correctly, no? On the client side I used both smartcvs and cygwin to do the add/commit and checkout, and it makes no difference, so I'm thinking it's the server. THanks in advance, Dean
