Hi All Firstly, this is the second time I have tried to post this message, so I apologise if this has been repeated, but I can't see the previous one in the archive so I assume it got lost some where. I am have problems with a file that was previously renamed. Normally I use TortoiseCVS to do a diff on a file before committing. However when I try to "diff" an renamed file it fails with a "cannot find module" error. TortoiseCVS sends the command line c:\program files\CVSNT\cvs.exe -d -f checkout -r 1.31 -d temp MyRepo/ExecCommands.c So previously I have manually retrieve the older version using its previous name. c:\program files\CVSNT\cvs.exe -d -f checkout -r 1.31 -d temp MyRepo/Command.c This manual work around has worked fine until recently. I recently created a branch, I have now checked in modification to the same file in both the head and branch versions. When I now try to checkout any version of ExecCommands.c (the new name) it fails with a "cannot find module" error, as before. However, when I now try to manually checkout any version of Command.c (the old name) it fails with a "is not (any longer) pertinent" warning. It does create the "temp" directory but does not put any files in to it. I have tried checking out while in my sandbox, and in a completely clean directory, but still no file. This means I currently have no way to retrieve my file from CVS (without directly access to repository). This there anything I can do? I am currently using version CVSNT 2.5.4 Zen build 3125 RC8 both client and server. I am running the client and server on the same windows XP SP2 machine. TortoriseCVS version 0.60 is installed, but I am using the command prompt for this work. How does CVSNT internally rename a file? I noted the file in the repository still has the old name. Could I hack the repository to restore the old file name back? All help welcome Alastair Hoyle
