A university project of mine is forcing me to use CVS. Whenever in a team i always left the CVS up to the other people (all i know is to commit and checkout files in a Linux environment). I am using windows now and this is an individual project. I have no idea where to begin setting up CVS, or how i can get CVS on windows. Sure i tried google, but there is just this mass of information about different CVS projects and clients and its just confusing. Put simply, how can i get a simple CVS system working in windows? Can CVS be used on a single machine or do you need to SSH into a CVS server with a repository (whenever I look at CVS information on the web they always talk about using an SSH client, but I really just want a local system on my computer). Are there any common or simple CVS implementations on windows that people reccomend? I actually use wxDevC++ which has CVS commands in its menues, but does not come with CVS itself. Does anyone know how to get CVS working with DevC++? Thanks for the help.

I use CVSNT for server and TortoiseCVS for clients (it can also be used on the server) and both are IMO really simple to set up. Now you can google ;-)

On Windows I would recommend using TortioiseCVS if you aren't that used to CVS. It makes the common usages of CVS very easy to do. In particular, it should allow you to create a repository on your computer with very little effort.

Ahh, gamedev.net users never fail. TortoiseCVS looks to be the easy option I am after. Thanks. I might end up liking CVS and using it for myself even when I am not obliged.

Again, thanks to those who replied. :)
