Download the latest TortoiseCVS - I believe this is fixed - but if not

You should avoid using 'cvs admin' commands at all times - there is
ALWAYS a better way than using the admin command. My personal favourite
coding option to fix this is to replace the entire 'admin.cpp' with
printf("ignoring user command since user hasn't thought about it
Just checkout the files, then 'cvs up -k-x' then 'cvs ci -f -m "remove
