This is not the WinCVS forum and the problem you are seeing is due to
using the WinCVS 'wizard' to create a CVSROOT.  Don't use the wizard,
manually enter a 'normal' CVSROOT intead, ie:
    :sspi:shlomot at cvsnt:/repo

Your existing sandbox is no good - you'll need to create it again using
a 'real' CVSROOT (not one created using the WinCVS wizard) or instead
use the macro to fix it.
