Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

If you previously have installed CVSNT on that same machine using the
InnoSetup installer that was distributed with WinCvs or Tortoise or in
fact CVSNT 2.0.58 and earlier, then you will have all kinds of trouble
when you use the latest MSI installer from Mach Hare.

You actually have to UNINSTALL CVSNT first completely and restart your
Check that there are no cvs services running.
Also check that noone is listening on ports 2401 and 2402.
(use "netstat -a -p tcp" in a command window to list all TCP ports and
look for these ports among the LISTENING group.
If you find any of these then you have to fix that first.

Then install again using the CVSNT MSI installer and I bet that all will
work fine.

Best regards,

There shouldn't be a problem with cvslock and Win2K

What error message do you get? What is in the Event Log?

You have some anti-virus/firewall software running... so make sure you
cvslock and cvs to connect to their ports... disable virus scanning in
repository directories (or the performance will be awful).

It can't bind to the port, which means something else (probably cvslock)
already using that port. Are you sure the cvslock service hasn't already
