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.

Then, using the "change location" button of the "browse" toolbar, select your new repository. Voila! Single person development up and running! Enjoy!


Thanks a lot, Mike! That was exactly what I needed. CVS gives me a reliable versioning and backup this way. And yes, it's a single person development at home for our parish.
