Matthew, You are making the test way to complex - just follow what I've already done and you will find it works as documented. To prove the templates work when used as documented you can download my sample repo from here and try that on your laptop: http://march-hare.com/archive/myrepo.zip Ensure you are running the CVSNT lock service and the CVSNT Dispatch service from the services control panel. Once you have downloaded and unzipped the repo to c:\test /path (or whereever) then go into the cvsnt server control panel and create a new repository specifying the existing unzipped repo. Now simply do this using the SSPI protocol as described: I:\renametest>cvs -d :sspi:localhost:/test/myrepo co projects cvs server: Updating projects cvs server: Updating projects/src U projects/src/hello.cpp U projects/src/hello.h U projects/src/test.txt I:\renametest>type projects\src\cvs\Template CVS: this is a template Do not use a different CVSROOT, do not alter the administration files - just run the test as described and post the results to the newsgroup. The :local: protocol is for the exclusive use of the CVSNT project development team - it should absolutely never ever be used by anyone else for any reason whatsoever. For instance the 'tempalte' functions don't work with :local:, the acl functions don't work with :local: and neither do many many other things - the local protocol is simply NOT for public use.
