Hi there,

I'm using the most recent TortoiseCVS on Windows Vista Enterprise (32 bit),
however, I'm running into some weird problem that seems to be related to
CVSNT, not TortoiseCVS. When I do a cvs checkout from moodle cvs sever, I'm
getting these error messages and the checkout process will be interrupted:

cvs checkout: cannot remove
Directory not empty
cvs checkout: cannot remove moodle/lang/so: Directory not empty
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot open CVS/Entries for copying: Permission

Error, CVS operation failed.

Please help, thanks!
