Hi Bo,

Put this in a batch file and run it.  Whereis cvs.exe
It won't show you all of the cvs.exe on the system but it will show you the
one that's being found.

@echo off
SET WhereIsPath="%~$PATH:1"
IF %WhereIsPath% == "" (
 ECHO %1 not found
) ELSE (
  echo %WhereIsPath%

This works on W2k and above.
