Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, I actually use that myself when I access
CVS. I was trying to avoid pageant because I had a feeling it might cause
problems with the task scheduler. (We only use this system via Win2000's
Remote Desktop Connection. Do the scheduled tasks run as a service?) Anyway,
I'm gettig desperate enough to try anything, so I investigated using pageant
Using pageant, I can't seem to get it to log in automatically when I use
the command-line "cvs". I wrote a .cmd script that looks somewhat like this:
echo Adding private key into pageant's cache...
start /wait pageant private-key.txt
echo Updating from %CVSROOT%
"c:\program files\tortoisecvs\cvs.exe" -z9 update -d
After 'cvs.exe' runs, I get somewhat garbled output, like:
' from cvs serverng: unrecognized response `Permission denied, please try
Sometimes it asks me for the password for the user account. (The same one
that I have specified in the CVSROOT) The strange thing is, when I try
"C:\Program Files\TortoiseCVS\tortoiseplink" user@...
... then it logs right in.
So now I'm back at square one... =/
