If you are trying to get TortoiseCVS working on Windows Vista, but keep getting the error “TortoisePlink has stopped working”, read on.
On Monday I took delivery of a shiny new Dell Inspiron 1510 and so far I’m really pleased with it. I opted for the standard install of Vista Home Premium SP1, with some trepidation as there are a lot of stories about how awful it is. I’m fairly new to Vista; my first contact with it was when I changed jobs two months ago and at the end of my first week was presented with a new laptop with Vista Pro installed.
But despite the horror stories I’ve read elsewhere, I’m pretty happy. However, I did encounter one problem which was, for me, a show-stopper. I couldn’t get CVS to work. I’ve been using CVS for quite a few years now, and have a large library of software in a CVS repository on an ageing Dell SC420 running Fedora Core 4 (yes, I know, I should really upgrade - but it works, so why fix it)?
