Unhappy How to call command line function thru wincvs


I try to call checkout from Wincvs using Visual build professional's CVS function. But it just lauch the Wincvs and does nothing. The state is forever building untill i close the WinCVS application then i became completed.

How do i call checkout or any other command from Visual build professional's cvs function.

I'm using WinCVS version beta13 (build 2)

thank you.

You shouldn't launch WinCVS. That is a GUI client for CVS. You should use the CVS step built into VBP. It uses cvs.exe to get the work done. In my case the .exe is at:

C:\Program Files\GNU\WinCvs 1.3\CVSNT\cvs.exe

I am using the same version of WinCVS so it is likely that you will find cvs.exe in the same place (but perhaps on a different drive).

You may have to talk to your cvs admin about the Repository details for the CVS step. We use pserver and are required to have logged on previously (easiest to do from WinCVS).
