Hi Ralph,

I would have expected you to see an error like:

L:\prj> cvs history
cvs [server aborted]: cannot open history file: E:/CVSRepo/prj/CVSROOT/history: 
No such file or directory

if the history file did not exist.

You may wish to see what is in the E:/CVSRepo/prj/CVSROOT file.

Let us know what the output of the 'cvs version' command is
as well as if the repository is remote or local (getting the 
'E cannot open<newline>E:/CVSRepo/prj/CVSROOT/config: Invalid argument'
return value is just odd (both for having the <newline>unless your
e-mail did word-wrapping and for spewing the internal format of the
error return back to you).

Let us know what the value of the CVSROOT variable is too.
