I had some problems upgrading CVSNT 2.5.03.something to; it's  
working fine now, but I'd like to report them in case someone has a  
similar problem.

Once the install finished and I had to restart the server, I noticed that  
there was NO control panel icon for CVSNT, neither in the Windows control  
panel nor in the menu item.
Executing `cvs version` on the client showed this error message  
"audit_trigger database is version 1 but need version 3". I could find no  
menction of this message in the manual, nor anywhere, so I guessed the  
Control Panel should have an Upgrade button or something... I re-run the  
installation, choosing "Repair", and after rebooting the server again, at  
last I got the CVSNT Control Panel.
There was an "upgrade" button, but it didn't work (with a File not Found  
error or similar). Looking in the install dir I found some sql files; I  
opened the two related to my database (sqlite), I had to replace all  
%PREFIX% occurences by (nothing), and after executing both sql scripts the  
server worked fine.
