Checkout Problem in Eclipse and TortoiseCVS clients

Hi,

I am using CVS NT as Server and My Eclipse/TortoiseCVS as client.

When i try to check out the project using TortoiseCVS,
it shows the directory structure till the checkout process. But once the process get completed the folder is just left with a hidden CVS subfolder which have files like Entries, Entries.Extra,Entries,Entries.Old,Repositry & Root.

In the same way when i'm trying to check out with Eclipse i'm just getting a blank project after the process completed.

What i'm doing wrong here?
Help me to checkout files with both the clients.

regards,
R.Saravanan.

Are there files in the repository or just the directory structure? Many clients (including Eclipse) supress empty directories by default.

Thanks for the reply.
yes I do have 3 directories(modules) in the repositry.
But I'm not getting it on checkout.
What might be the problem?
