It was long ago that Wintendo support was skipped for CVSNT. You can
be happy that client side operations may still work, but server.....

Notice that CVSNT will not work properly on Windows XP Home edition
either. This is because of limitations in the operating system. You
need an NT class system (W2K, XP-Pro, W2003) if you run it on Windows.
But you can also install CVSNT on Linux, you don't have to use

For what reason could you seriously consider running a CVSNT server on
such an unreliable operating system???
