I seem to be unable to set up the templates functionality for commiting

The error:
You need to setup Template using rcsinfo file. Please refer to CVS
documentation for more details.

I am using:
CVSNT 2.5.03 Build 2260
WinCVS Build 4

My repository is setup as follows:


My rcsinfo file:



CVS: Enter a list of SCR numbers separated by whitespace on the "SCR's:" line
CVS: Below this, describe your changes

It seems no matter how I edit the rcsinfo file, even giving it the full
path (DEFAULT D:\cvsrepo\attoTest\CVSROOT\msgtemplate.txt) it will not

I know I must be missing something simple, but I cannot find it!

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance--
