CVS Client in Windows

This is OLD content

This is to use the command line. For a graphical client, try TortoiseCVS (my favorite) or WinCVS.

Setup

• Click on the "Win32" link (beneath the "Where to Get CVS for Windows 95/NT" title) for the latest version.
• Unzip to any directory. Add this directory (e.g. c:\path\to) to your PATH environment variable.
• In WinXP or Win2k, go to the properties of My Computer, click on the Advanced tab, click on Environment Variables. Click New under User variables (or system if you want this to work for all users). Enter path and c:\path\to. In Win95, Win98 or WinME, run notepad, open c:\autoexec.bat and at the bottom, add the line set PATH="%PATH%;c:\path\to"

You can now use cvs in a DOS command prompt. For example:

set CVSROOT=:pserver:dpb2@csx.calvin.edu:/home/cvsroot/gamedev
