I've just downloaded the win32 version of the cvs client to be used with tkcvs (under WinME) and had to do a lot of digging to resolve some basic installation problems.

The problems I ran into was the strict requirement to have the environment variables HOMEDIR and HOMEPATH defined and even so the cvs client seemed very particular about the format. It seems it does not like or accept trailing slashes nor an empty string or non-existent entry for HOMEPATH.

Then it refused to create the file .cvspass if it does not exist in the specified path and under WinME it is a bit tricky to create .cvspass - a file without a file name in WInME's opinions :-).

Surely I can't be the only one to be using cvs in this environment?

Are there any information files that I missed?
