I understand now. :) Thanks.
> OK, that's the issue.
> CVSNT is really a database with a specialised front-end. Think of CVSNT's central repository files like you'd think of a database files - they're magic and shouldn't be touched! You wouldn't go in and edit an Oracle database's files directly; you'd use the Oracle client. Similarly, don't edit CVSNT's repository files directly; always use the CVS client.
> To solve the problem, assuming that F:\cvsrepo is the location of your repository on the CVS server:
> - Remove the files you copied to F:\cvsrepo\myproject.com;
> - Use TortoiseCVS to *import* the files into the repository from where you have them on your client.
> (If you then want to peek behind the curtain, take a look at F:\cvsrepo\myproject.com again - you'll see a whole load of files with ,v extensions which are CVSNT's database files. Don't touch them, just make sure the area is backed up and there's no real-time antivirus scanning there!)
