How to enable Python2.4 for WinCVS?
Because sometimes I use Windows for daily desktop (the company’s IM system can’t run on FreeBSD and that’s the only reason why I can’t use FreeBSD as desktop at company) I have adopted WinCVS as development tool.
Unfortunatelly, when I have started WinCVS, it complained that it can’t find python (the version I have installed is 2.4). After searching the disk I figured out that the file exists in windows/system32/, not python24/dll. Corrected this setting and WinCVS appears to work correctly.
No, I will switch to my FreeBSD desktop once I got a solution of our IM :-)

I am having the same problem and came across this entry while searching for a solution.
Please clarify “…searching the disk I figured out that the file exists in windows/system32/, not python24/dll. Corrected this setting…”
What file? What setting? What action did you take?

Under ‘Admin –> Preference’ select ‘WinCvs’ tab.
select the ‘python DLL :’ and navigate to ‘C:\WINNT\system32\python24.dll’ (assuming you have installed python 2.4)
Note : I installed python 2.4 under c:\Python24
