HI Michael,

TortoiseCVS is a GUI not a client - CVSNT is the client used by

Version 2.0.41 is not supported (it's over 5 years old), please upgrade
to 2.5.04.

Upgrading from old such extremely old versions can be dangerous - I
strongly recommend you uninstall rather than 'upgrade'.

The easiest way to upgrade is to download the 'fat' installer from the
main cvsnt download page - it includes TortoiseCVS, WinMerge, WinCVS etc
or if all you want is TortoiseCVS you could get TortoiseCVS 1.10 from
their own site which I think includes CVSNT 2.5.04.
