Gif image paths are showing up red when I do a cvs update to my local machine. How can I fix this?

Hi

Thank you for reading.

I have wincvs for managing my code but I noticed recently that although everything seems to be working, wincvs is complaining about images which are showing up as red in the list of checked out files.

I am getting the usual......
***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

I notice that wincvs has my image files listed as binary.
Also, wincvs is only complaining about a few images, most are all right.

I am very much a beginner with winCVS so please go easy with your instructions.

In addition to the above problem, does anyone know where I will find a good tutorial/documentation on wincvs suitable for a beginner who wants to get into branching etc

I have a few questions first:
1. Is WinCVS saying the file is Modified or Conflict?
2. What are the extensions of the image files showing red?  Are they .jpg or some other format?
3. Is the file type of the files that are showing red the same extension/type as the ones not having a problem?
4. If you check out a fresh copy from WinCVS and look at the timestamps of the files that are showing red, are they different?

There could be a few different issues.  If some of your binary files were imported into CVS as ascii, not binary, then it will cause corruption in the binary files.  If it is all ok in terms of binary settings in CVS, then it may be that something else changed like the file timestamps.  Can you give any more information?

This is supposedly a beginners manual.  Seems pretty good.  It is from the Wincvs people, so should be thorough.

By the way, my personal opinion is that, for a Windows solution for CVS, I find TortoiseCVS to by much better.  It integrates into the Windows context menus.
