I think that as Bo pointed out that this may be a part (if not all) of
CVSROOT is not a valid repository name, and repository names beginning
with c:/ are laregely unsupported and can cause all sorts of problems.
Your physical repository should looks something like:
C:/myrepo/CVSROOT (administrative directory)
In the CVSNT control panel you alias c:/myrepo to /myrepo, so your final
CVSNT connection string is:
:pserver:Andy at NEW-P4:/myrepo
And your checkout command is:
cvs -d :pserver:Andy at NEW-P4:/myrepo co customerwebsite
I think I recall from your earlier comments that you are using WinCVS as
a GUI. I strongly recommend you install the cvs-suite-trial from the
2.5.04 download page and use the combination of TortoiseCVS and CVS
Suite Studio/Workspace Manager included in that. You are far less
likely to get the wrong result using those tools. WinCVS is an
excellent tool - but I would not recommend it to a novice.
