[cvsnt] CVSNT, Control Panel, and Windows Vista?

I have been happy with CVSNT 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382
on Windows XP. However, the new computer runs Windows Vista
(Enterprise). I could not run the CVSNT Control Panel to add 
the transfered (zip/unzip) repository from the old computer.

When searching for the solution, I have found in mail archive:

So, I tried CVSNT installed from the package
cvsnt-server- (asked for Restart), but the
Control Panel still does not work.

Is there any command-line alternative to add a repository?
(I mean the step that creates alias like /cvsrootXXX for
the real path like E:\cvsrootXXX.) In other words, can 
I have the full functionality without the Control Panel?
Should I set any compatibility mode for the Control Panel?
(I am very new to Vista; if yes, then please how?)

Thanks for your time and experience,

P.S. I thought I could switch to evs, but Tony explained to me
that it is experimental and there is no tool to convert
the existing cvsnt repository to evs repository.
