Hi folks,

Similar question here:  Is there a Win98/2000 light cvs server?

To use WinCVS for standalone development, select "create a new repository" from the "create" menu. Check your settings carefully - you want local mode with matching path and CVSROOT(pick a new directory). Once you click "OK", your new repository will be created and initialized.
