Subject RE: [OT] WinCVS problem (free beer!)

Ever think of using Eclipse (v3.X) ?  I use it for Java/Struts/Tomcat (Via
the Sysdeo plug-in) development and it includes a built-in CVS client.
Add-ons also allow for SVN.

Subject: [OT] WinCVS problem (free beer!)

Ok, no free beer, I lied ;)  Got your attention though!

I'm just now trying to use CVS for the first time, and I'm having a
problem I haven't been able to figure out, and I'm sure at least some of
you here are using WinCVS, so I hope no one minds an OT question (FYI, I
couldn't find a WinCVS support forum)...

I've installed WinCVS 1.3 (the latest from the site,
downloaded today) on Windows XP.  I haven't however installed Python or
TCL, as they are optional.  The install went fine.

But, when I try to run it, it freezes.  I see the splash screen, and the
popup mentioning Python.  I click OK, and it's just frozen, can't do
anything.  I can close it via right-clicking the taskbar item, but
nothing else.  It works on my work PC by the way, although I can't do
anything with it there because of firewall restrictions, so I really
need it working at home.

I've checked to be sure the CvsNT and CvsNT Locking services are
running, and they are (not even sure that's necassery, but still).  I've
spent 30 minutes or so Googling for an answer but haven't had any luck.

Any ideas from anyone around here?  Again, sorry for the OT post, but I
couldn't resist tapping the expertise of these lists.  Thanks a lot!
