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
