Chuck's analysis below was correct. I followed his recommendation (update -k-x) which removed the read-only status from the so-marked files. So far so good. Now, I get the following error when I try to commit (W/TortoiseCVS) a changed binary file: In C:\Documents and Settings\TSI\Desktop\TradeStationIndicators\TrackedELDs: "C:\Program Files\CVSNT\cvs.exe" commit -m "corresponds to source revision 1.9" TSi_TurnSignal(K).ELD CVSROOT=:SSPI:GORDODESK1:/CVSRepositories cvs server: user 'TSI' is not a valid editor of the file 'TSi_TurnSignal(K).ELD' cvs [server aborted]: correct above errors first! Error, CVS operation failed Please help! I have no idea how to correct this.

You can verify it by doing a "cvs stat" on one of the files and seeing if it has the expansion option x. When you commit files with Tortoise for example it marks all your binary files for exclusive write. It expects you to use "cvs edit". So you have a couple of choices. You can modify your workflow to use the "cvs edit" command before modifying the file, or you can "cvs update -k-x" and then "cvs commit" to remove the exclusive write. If that's not your problem, then it's likely "cvs watch off" to fix it. Unlike "cvs watch add" which sends email to a specific user, "cvs watch on" just seems to make all the files read-only (again expecting "cvs edit"). I'm not exactly sure of the purpose for this feature, but I know that turning it off doesn't remove watches but does make the files writable again. HTH chuck
