I just worked through this. If there is a iconv.dll in the system32 directory move it aside and see if the control panel works. If it does then it is due to the fact that the service that is running the control panel is in the system32 directory and windows always finds dlls in the same directory as the executable before looking anywhere else. I found that the "bad" iconv.dll was from Systran and when I moved it to the Systran directories both the CVSNT control panel and Systran worked fine. Good luck! It took almost a week to find this one. Regards David David W. Smith Synopsys Scientist Synopsys, Inc.

I've tried version 2.5.03.2382, both Windows installer and Innosetup installer. I also tried 2.5.03.2260, Windows installer. None of these successfully installed the control panel applet. Then I tried v 2.0.51d, from WinCVS, which did work. However I need the newer version installed.
