#1005 Runtime error R6034 (make WinCVS compatible to Python 2.6)

WinCvs (709)

When starting WinCVS (after closing "Tips of the Day), the following error message message box appears twice:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Error
Program: c:\Program Files\GNU\WinCVS 2.0\wincvs
R6034 - An application has made an attempt to load the C rutime library incorrectly.

Clearing the preferences for "Python DLL" and "TCL DLL" helps also in suppressing the error message.

After dismissing the error messages, the "Ignore" marcos work. (Haven't used any other)

I have WinCVS (Build 4)
Python DLL is c:\WINDOWS\system32\python26.dll
TCL DLL is c:\Program Files\Python26\DLLs\tcl85.dll

    I'm using with Python 2.6.4 and it works.

    And where do you get version 2.1 from? The download page (http://cvsgui.sourceforge.net/download.html) just mentiones several 2.0 versions.

    Thanks. I can confirm that with version 2.1 the issue is gone.
    Can I help in updating the "official" download page (i.e. the one you get when googling "WinCVS")?
