Hi, Shortly: I am observing cvslock error when doing typical cvs operations on Windows XP Pro SP2 for normal "user" privileges. OK for "administrator" privileges. How to fix the settings? (I tried to find the answer, really. Possibly did not try hard enough. ;) I am using CVSNT for quite a long time, but only in a simple environment, i.e. only on my local computer, not accessible from outside. Until recently I did use Win 2000 Pro with no problem [version 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2151 (client/server)] using administrator's privileges. I have decided to switch to Windows XP Pro SP2 at home and tried to work as a normal user. I have installed the cvsnt under administrator and it works fine under administrator. When I log-in as a normal user and do things like 'cvs co...' it seems to work (and it seems to finish the work), but the message about cvslock.exe error appears. The repository was copied under administrator privileges to the same place as on the old computer. I believe I did remove the read-only attributes (copied via CD). I believe that it is a well known problem and it is only my blindness of some kind. Any pointer of "Here you are, you stupid: URL..." is O.K. Thanks for your time and experience, Petr -- Petr Prikryl (prikrylp at skil dot cz)
