Hey all, I just downloaded cvsnt and tried to create a new repository to 
begin playing around with.  CVSNT said I can't because I don't have 
permission.  Well, I'm the first user, and I don't see in the manual 
where to give myself administrator permission. And adding a user 
requires a repository, according to the error message.

Am I missing something?  A complete install of CVSNT includes a server, 
yes?  I'm not sure how to get over the hump of just starting out.  Any 
help is much appreciated.  I'm running windows vista:

C:\Users\Brenden\Dev\srcdb>dir \Users\Brenden\Dev\srcdb
  Volume in drive C is OS
  Volume Serial Number is 2225-A6A0

  Directory of C:\Users\Brenden\Dev\srcdb
