Thu 13 Nov 2003 11:43:44 PM UTC, original submission:

I am trying to run this script on a server (CVSNT) windows 2003 box.

I have CVSNT setup on C:\ drive and repository on f:\ drive .. Right now I am trying the scripts from the c:\ of the server itself.

"perl cvsreport -df:\cvsrepo\cm -f now-1month -n10"

Doing that gives me an error "The system cannot find the path specified."

I even tried the "cvsroot" format I would use on a CVS client (outside this server) to connect :

"perl cvsreport -d:sspi@:cvs-bel1:2404:/cm -f now-1month -n10"

I get the same error.

My access on the server, and the above format is also correct while doing simple checkouts thru a client.

I tried using the example.conf file given, copy it to d:\tmp\cvsreport.conf.
Then editing the "cvsreport" file and the variables for temp and global conf file. temp was set to d:\tmp and the config file to d:\tmp\cvsreport.conf

Anyone have used this under windows / cvsnt ?

It can be used both at client and server side, ie. it does automatic
changeset detection and reporting at commit time or later on-demand.
It's actually more popular as an automatic server-side tool.

It's Perl, it should just run on your platform 'as is'. Cvsreport used
to depend on an external mail program, but the latest release (0.3.4)
has direct SMTP support. The only - but obvious - dependency is CVS
itself, make sure it's in your PATH.

Make sure to read the man page (badly formatted in HTML) here :
