How to checkout a module using WinCVS

Checking out a module

Checking out a module is means getting a copy of the current project module into your work area.

Goto Remote > Checkout Module... and bring up the screen Checkout Settings screen

Enter the name of the module, you should be given this before hand.

And enter your working directory.

By default a new directory will be created in your working directory. The name of this new directory is equal to the module unless unless you specify a different one.

You only need to Checkout a module once, and you should aim for a non-existant directory so you don't confuse things.

Example

In this example, CVSROOT has already been set. The D:\jurn\existing_project directory will be created by WinCVS.
