Hi, I have used cvs at work for long and it helped me to install, and just installed cvsnt and also tortoiseCVS on my windows XP system. I also installed wincvs as well, but currently I'm using tortoiseCVS. After installed them I could create repository and module in Repository using tortoiseCVS. However, when I tried to add (import) files in the module using tortioseCVS, I found that the dropdown menu in which I expected to see tortoiseCVS's Add command was not included. What I did was... I clicked right button of mouse on the root file holder under which there were files I wanted to import to the module created in CVS repository. I spent a lot time to figure out why it didn't properly work out, but could not find direct answer. Only I could was that using wincvs I could import the files to the module. Then, I noticed that tortoise's green icon for imported module file holder didn't appear even though the importing was succesufull. I continued to search for the information for the problem, and then I found that an issue of unmatched build problem between cvsnt and tortoiseCVS build. So, I went to cvsnt and tortoiseCVS download site to find a correct build, but I could not find any but the latest build. The versions of CVSNT and tortoiseCVS (and also winCVS) I am using are the latest stable build. But, according to an article about this problem says there have been some changes on building CVSNT, and it causes problem to use it with tortoiseCVS. I'm not 100% sure what causes my problem, but I'm guessing it may cause my problem. I have reinstalled both cvsNT and tortoiseCVS a couple times, but it didn't help to solve this problem. I tired to use cvs.exe under cvsnt directory (I copied it under tortoiseCVS directory) with tortoiseCVS, and I noticed that tortoiseCVS can't work with it. Do you know why I have this problem and how to fix it? Thank you in advance Sam
