"Prepend perl to the command line" doesn't mean add it before the regexp, it means add it before your script file name. In general, although Windows may have an association of extension .myext to program myprog.exe, this doesn't work in cvsnt scripts. So just saying : myregexp thisfile.myext Won't work. You need to do: myregexp myprog.exe thisfile.myext Hoping this helps, Richard. -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of Trip Kirkpatrick Sent: 20 April 2007 22:05 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: [cvsnt] New Postcommit Problems I'm banging my head against postcommit trying to get my scripts working again. At some point recently* committing files started reporting invalid escape characters and a failed script. After poking around, I saw that I should be using forward slash or double-backslash in file paths. Changed the postcommit lines to the former. No dice. Changed them to the latter. No dice. Stripped the postcommit lines out completely. No failures. Started building a single command line up and immediately got the "script failed" error with no further info. Found in the archives that I should have completely uninstalled CVSNT before installing with the MSI. Uninstalled (found that there were two entries in appwiz.cpl), rebooted, reinstalled 2.5.03.2382, rebooted. No dice. Here's what I'd like to execute and what used to execute: ^FrameworkCore d:\files\cometrepo\CVSROOT\update_directory.vbs d:\files\www-dev \cometrepo (where d is a local partition) Here's what I've tried unsuccessfully since stripping all the commands from the postcommit file: ^FrameworkCore ^FrameworkCore d:/dummy.vbs I saw a thread in the archives about someone with some problems in upgrading, and his solution was, in part, to prepend perl to the command line. Maybe I'm just being thick, but isn't the first arg to the command line treated as a regex pattern? Do I have to prepend the WSH executable? Environment: Win 2K3 server Win XP Pro (TortoiseCVS) client Hope you can help, Tk *You would be right in berating me for not tracking changes to my server more closely. -- Trip Kirkpatrick SysAdmin / Sr. Programmer Center for Language Study e: trip.kirkpatrick at yale.edu w: http://www.cls.yale.edu/ _______________________________________________ cvsnt mailing list cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
