Can someone recommend a windows alternative version control system rather than CVS/subversion that will require loading on a *nix box?

freeware or paid would be fine

many thanks

I just got CVSNT up and running. Works pretty well.

RE: Windows Alternative

Thanks Keith - I think we are now trialling Tortoise SVN. Will post results here if anyone interested - can 9,000,000 people be wrong?!


RE: Windows Alternative

I downloaded WinCVS, RapidSVN and Subversion.  So far RapidSVN gets my vote, but still have not made a good login to SourgeForce, so vote is still out.


RE: Windows Alternative


haven't got any of these to work right.  How about some help from a guru that hacked their way through the install and config problems to make it all work?


RE: Windows Alternative

Good luck. CVSNT is working great for us. It was hell figuring it out, but it's working great. I can't give you a comprehensive instructions, but I'd be happy to help you if you get stuck.
