I found one method, but it is a bit clumsy. I would rather like to have
a way to use a command like:
 "findpath cvs.exe"
or similar and then a display of *all* instances that could be found via
the path on the system.

The cludge solution I found is:
- Create new shortcut on desktop
- Enter cvs.exe in "location of item" (no path!)
- Next and finish
Now open the shortcut properties and look at "Target"
Here is the path to the cvs.exe file.

But it only gives a single value of course....

Best regards,

Subject: [cvsnt] How to find rogue cvs.exe???

I have a remote collegue who had his PC crash a few days ago. Now he is
trying to work on a slightly older laptop. One of his tasks is to get
CVS/WinCvs up and running on the laptop.
I instructed him on what to install (CVSNT Client build 2382, WinCvs
2.1.1, ActiveStatePython, WinMerge) but he is having major problems and
cannot get it to work.
So I asked him to run cvs --ver on the command line and it turned up cvs
How the h.ll this old version could get on to his laptop is byond me,
unless it was lingering from old times.

But now is the problem how to find it and get rid of it. Obviously
Windows finds it, but he is so far unable to.

Is there a way to ask Windows to spell out the *path* to an executable
when it can find it if one gives the command on the command line? For
example if I type cvs on the command line it finds somewhere a cvs.exe
version 2.0.51d, how can one display *where* it has been found???
