Hi All:

I am using CVSNT VERSION 2.5.04 and WinCvs
In WinCvs, I went to admin/login menu.
For CVSROOT, I put the following and able to login in Wincvs:

In CVSNT, my

I right click on a file in wincvs on c:\test1\test1.txt and choose "Add" and
I get the following error from wincvs:
cvs add -- test1.txt (in directory C:\test1)
Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password
cvs [add aborted]: /cvsrepos/test/: no such repository

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

In the file C:\cvsrepos\test\CVSROOT\config I have the following settings:

# Set this to 'no' if pserver shouldn't check system users/passwords

# Set the Acl parsing type (none,compat,normal).

# Alternate location of CVS LockServer.  Set to 'none' to disable..

# Set 'TopLevelAdmin' to 'yes' to create a CVS directory at the top
# level of the new working directory when using the 'cvs checkout'
# command.

# Set 'LogHistory' to 'all' or 'TOFEWGCMAR' to log all transactions to the
# history file, or a subset as needed (ie 'TMAR' logs all write operations)

# Set 'RereadLogAfterVerify' to control rereading of the log file after a
#   'always' or 'yes' to always reread the log regardless
#   'never' or 'no' (default) to never reread the log

# Set 'Watcher' to set a user who gets all notify events within the
repository whether
# or not the ifle is watched.

In the file C:\cvsrepos\test\CVSROOT\.passwd I have the following settings:

Why am I getting this error?
Is there something I am suppose to set in WinCVS.
I login as Administrator with the password mychau1 and it seem I can login
in but why am I getting the above error when I try to choose "addd" for a
test1.txt file in wincvs?
