Re: win2000 cvs batch file

I seem to remember having this same problem awhile ago.  I believe the
problem has to do with the fact that when the task scheduler runs, it does
not inherit any environment settings, so the "HOME" variable is probably not
set.  In your batch file, add the line:

set HOME=C:

before you make any calls to CVS.  Of course, replace "C:" with whatever you
currently use for your "HOME" environment variable.
