Hi I am using sspi with WinCVS 188.8.131.52 (Build 4) with CVSNT 2.5.03.2260 on WinXP Pro at the client end, with CVSNT 2.5.03.2382 on Windows Server 2003 as the CVSNT server. I have a project where we have been doing some updates to some code that is about 1 year old. As part of this we have to do bug fixes on the old version as well as provide an enhanced version. I created a branch for the fixes to the old version at the start of the bug-fixing and enhancements process. I have been doing all the fixes to the old version on the bug fix branch, and all the enhancements (new functionality etc) on the main trunk. This is all working fine as far as I can tell, and I have managed to keep the two lines of work separate but roughly in step by merging back most of the changes from the bug fix branch to the main trunk. Now my problem: I have tagged the files at the new end of the bug fix branch as "V1_1_2" being our candidate Version 1.1.2 source code - this looks fine. But now I want to check out a clean copy of this V1.1.2 code into another directory, without the CVS directories ("export") to build a version for passing to the customer for testing. But I just get the error message: cvs -d :sspi:server:2401:/main export -r V1_1_2 -- module (in directory C:\users\xxx\yyy\module) cvs [export aborted]: no such tag V1_1_2 If I look at any of the files' status information (e.g. cvs status -v -- filename.cpp) then I can see the correct tags etc on the file. So what am I doing wrong... I guess I need to finally order a really good book on CVSNT and how it *should* be used - anyone got any recommendations (he says, guessing what will come back - but please do highlight the best choices here anyway...)
