It is much easier to debug if the server and the client are the same version.  Why did you choose this version for the client?  Can you use 2.5.05 for the client?

This looks like WinCVS or TortoiseCVS - please just use the command line until we get this working.  Using WinCVS or TortoiseCVS adds a whole new set of potential problems.

Preferably use the FULL PATH to the installed 2.5.05 client to be certain that you are using the new version, eg:

  cd G:\temp\tmp2\new temp\文档\
  c:\program files\cvsnt\cvs.exe add -kb GTD81B_配置管理计划.doc
  c:\program files\cvsnt\cvs.exe ci -m "new file" GTD81B_配置管理计划.doc

No. In a few weeks we will have a trial of CVS Suite 2009 available.
