Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I've upgraded from CVSNT v2.0.51d to v2.5.03 and now that seems to have resolved the issue. The parameters I am passing to the script are being expanded by the cvs commit.

Script execution failed
However as you can see now, the script itself is not getting executed for some reason and the only thing that has changed is the upgrade of CVS. Is this a security issue with Windows XP SP1 or some configuration required for CVS NT. I'm running CVS under the :local protocol on my own machine. Any ideas please?

Different scripts have access to different variables.  See:


Try simplifying your script to see what it is that CVSNT is sending.
E.g. read in the command arguments and echo them out, then do the same
with STDIN to make sure you know what to expect.
