This only proves that you have 2260 available on your path.
But WinCvs has a configuration setting to control the cvs it will use
as client. Can point somewhere else...
When you use WinCvs and are located in a sandbox, then type the cvs
ver command into the bottom part of the WinCvs screen and hit Enter.
This sends the command using the cvs.exe that WinCvs is using. If you
get a different result than shown above then you have to go to the
menu item Admin/Preferences/CVS and change the "Alternate cvs
executable..." to point to your cvsnt 2260.
