I''m looking for something similiar to CVS for windows to help control development of software I am working on. Normally I would use the Unix alternative(CVS) but I just formatted by FreeBSD box the other day and I don''t feel like setting up another BSD system. I know of one that includes a pretty nice demo of the software that I believe starts with an F(Freeloader? Free-something?). Does anyone know of some decent version control software that runs on Windows and is relatively simple to setup and get going? Thanks.

Try out perforce (http://www.perforce.com/). I've used it in the past and it's pretty decent. They have a free version that's limited to 2 client connections (or at least they did when I tried it), which, if you're the only one using the source control, should be enough.

Subversion!

Setting up a Subversion server on Windows.

The free online Subversion book.

I wouldn''t bother with Perforce. While it''s nice, you''re going to run into the 2 connection limit sooner or later. Subversion is where it''s at.

You can use Tortoise CVS as your ''front-end''. It has shell integration (i.e. right-click menu on desktop icons).

I''ll second the recomendation of subversion. I''ve used cvs for a few years, and subversion is as good or better in all areas. TortoiseSVN is a shell extension for windows that makes versioning a doddle. Great stuff.

I also recommend using Subversion. I''ve been using it for a few months now and found it pretty simple to install and manage. Nice feature set and good manual also.

I''m gonna put in another vote for subversion Took me a couple of hours to set up a server (though I used BSD not windows) and learn how everything works. If you do get subversion TortoiseSVN is what you want for a nice client.
