I tried making sure that the CVSNT installation directory was the first in my path but that made no difference. Anyway doesn't windows look up DLL's in the following manner:
   The directory where the executable module for the current process is located.   
   The current directory.   
   The Windows system directory. The GetSystemDirectory function retrieves the path of this directory.   
   The Windows directory. The GetWindowsDirectory function retrieves the path of this directory.   
   The directories listed in the PATH environment variable. 
  Given this framework wouldnt Windows look first in the same directory as the cvs.exe program and find the correct dll?
  I am running the client on the same machine as the server and that machine only has a single installation of CVSNT so the version for the client and server are the same.
  Any other ideas?

E.g. some recent CVSNT versions like CVSNT had have a SSERVER
problem with elder CVSNT versions.

Since the described error message comes from the OpenSSL library, I recommend also to
if CVSNT is using the OpenSSL DLL, which comes with CVSNT, or if you have on your
a different OpenSSL DLL in your PATH, which is found earlier.

I am attempting to issue this command from a cmd window on the machine which is
hosting the CVSNT repository.
