Select Path

Specify the path to the CVS command line client, by opening a file browser dialog and navigating through the file system to locate the appropriate file

 

VC Time-Out Value

Specify the amount of time that Enterprise Architect waits for a CVS command to complete; if the command does not complete within the allowed time, Enterprise Architect displays a Time-out error message, detailing the command that failed to complete

This single time-out value is applied to all Version Control Configurations (of types SVN, TFS and CVS) that the user accesses from this workstation

 

Notes:

  • When connecting to a remote CVS repository, the Current User field should display the user name used to log into that repository; if this does not happen, it indicates that Enterprise Architect cannot extract the user name from the file
    ...\WorkingCopyPath\CVS\Root and the configuration does not work correctly
