I am not familiar with the term anonymous CVS. What exactly does it mean? I
tried to browse trough the open-ldap directory system and there is a sub
directory called CVS. But there is nothing in that. I did check the OpenLDAP
FAQ-O-Matic and there is a message about porting open-LDAP on NT with a
section about the 2 additional things I got to get, no problem there. But I
failed so far in getting the source code containing a .dsw working in Visual
C++. The only download file I got is openldap-relase.tgz and there is no
workspace or project file in there. So what would really help me at this
point is a URL where I could get the source code and some additional
information on the procedure for the build with Visual C++ under NT4.

It just renames some files in the include directory, but it has to be done
>for the other builds to work properly. Also, you have to have a regular
expression library (check the >OpenLDAP FAQ-O-Matic) and db 2.7.5 (I think)

questions. Don't hesitate to ask!
