I believe you will find that a 'cvs.exe --version' will indicate that
the executable you downloaded is a client-only rather than a client/server
version of cvs.

If you really need to use client/server on Windows XP, then you will
probably need to rebuild it in a cygwin environment.

If it is forbidden to install any software, then how is it you are
installing the cvs.exe program?

I do not really understand why CVSNT could not be installed. They
provide a very nice integration with Windows XP to work as both client
and server.

I am not a Windows XP user, so I am unable to aid you.

You may find it desirable to setup a CVS server on an operating system
that is better supported. Such operating systems include (in
alphabetical order): FreeBSD, GNU/Linux, NetBSD, and OpenBSD (all of
which come with a 'cvs' client already installed). Even such
'proprietary' operating systems as AIX, HP/UX, IRIX, BSDI BSD/OS, and
Solaris may have cvs client/server added with very little hassle.
