Hello Everyone. First let me apologize for the silly questions I will likely be asking. I am new to CVSNT. I have used an existing repository under Linux but have never set one up from scratch. I have downloaded CVSNT 2.5.03 build 2260 from March-Hare and Tortoisecvs-1.8.26. I followed the installation procedure by Bo Berglund as best I could. When I get to the Tortoise portion about creating a new module I get a Bad CVSROOT. I am selecting an empty folder as the source of the module. Do I need to have the files in that folder or point to a folder which contains the files. I was hoping to start this using a very simple project made up of one .c file and one .h file. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Greg. The Error Message follows. In C:\DOCUME~1\myname\LOCALS~1\Temp\TortoiseCVS make new module temp\: "C:\Program Files\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "-q" "-x" "import" "-m" "" "Apps" "tcvs-vendor" "tcvs-release" CVSROOT=:sspi:myname at myserver:2401:cvsrpos cvs.exe import: CVSROOT (":sspi:myname at myserver:2401:cvsrpos") cvs.exe import: requires a path spec cvs.exe import: :sspi[;keyword=value...]:[username[:password]@]host[:port][:]/path cvs.exe [import aborted]: Bad CVSROOT.
