Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I am using:

WinCvs (Build 4), on Vista 64, all updates installed
CVSNT 2.0.51d, on Windows 2003 Server, 32 bit, all updates installed.

Flags on the file ar -ku. What happens is that even if the file is indeed Unicode, a conversion to UTF-8 is done at commit time, and this is where the weird characters arfe from.

How do I set a specific code page for CVSNT?

What is the codepage of the server and client? What versions of CVSNT are you running on the server and the client?  What OS are you running on the server and the client?  What is the output of cvsdiag on the server (or if the server is linux/unix what is the /etc/cvsnt/Pserver file settings)?  If you do 'cvs ver' from a sandbox what is the answer?  If you enable the server to 'allow clients to trace server' then do a trace commit on the client 'cvs -ttt ci -m "" filename.ext' what does the trace say the server and local codepages are?
