What do you mean exactly?  WinCVS is a front-end to CVS and does not have a CVS repository itself.  You must have a CVS server (may be the same machine) set up separately to use WinCVS.  So if I understand your question correctly, the answer is no, WinCVS cannot be used on a standalone PC unless you also install a Windows version of CVS.

Yeah, that is what I want to know. I have a machine with W2K, then I want to manage my text files version, what can I do?
May I have to install CVSNT, then WinCVS on same machine? is it possible?
Do you have any other suggestion for version manage free sostware else?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Then I want to know which one is better about MS VSS and CVS?

It is possible to install both CVS and WinCVS on the same machine.

YOu can also take a look at the newer Subversion which is designed to replace CVS.  You can find it here: http://subversion.tigris.org/.  I use the RapidSVN client but have not tried the server yet.

For one-developer size projects, VSS should work just fine for you.  If you have experience with any of these, or know someone with experience to assist you, I'd just go with whatever you know.  Otherwise, Subversion is the newest thing.  I still use CVS for personal projects as I do not need fancier features for my own stuff.

Thanks for your answer!
You said CVS and WinCVS, is CVS = CVSNT or anything else?

There is also the Win32 binary directly from the main CVS site.  You can find it here: https://ccvs.cvshome.org/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?folderID=83&expandFolder=83&folderID=80

CVSNT has some bells and whistles that make it easier to deal with - like an installer.
