Hi,

The following is the line saying how to add new files or folders to the Repositry:

"If you have made new files or directories you will notice that they appear with the Not In CVS status icon overlay. To put new files or folders under CVS control select the item(s) that you want to add, right-click and choose CVS Add from context menu to schedule the addition. The Add Dialog is displayed so you can verify the file you are adding."

But when I right click on a folder i don't get any add option in the context menu. How can i add new files & folders? Help me.


regards,
R.Saravanan.

Perhaps you might tell us what IDE this is that you're using.

Thanks for the reply.

O.. sorry.I missed out the details in my previous post.
This is for TortoiseCVS & this lines are from its User Guide.
What should be the problem?

Do you see the "Not In CVS status icon overlay"?

No i don't see any icons.
I have installed only TortoiseCVS.
Should I install any other software additionally?

Well, you definitely need a CVS server, too - TortoiseCVS is just a client for CVS.

Then you need to connect a root folder to a CVS folder. I'm currently not sure how exactly that is called in CVS terminology - probably something like import or export.

Only *then* will you see the overlay icon for folders in the root folder that aren't checked in yet, and only *then* you will be able to add them.
