history output to file

i have tried this command in the WinCVS Admin\Command Line dialog. however,
i get the following message after i run it, and i can not find the file
anywhere on my hard drive.

cvs history -c -a -D 01/10/2002 > hist.txt
No records selected.

(if i run the same command without " > hist.txt", then i get information on
the screen.)

the HOME variable in the WinCVS Admin\Preferences dialog is "C:\Program
Files\GNU\WinCvs 1.2", but i don't see the file here either.

Drop to the command line (aka DOS Prompt, aka Command Prompt), and run
your history command from there. (WinCVS includes the command line
cvs client.) You will need to set your HOME and CVSROOT environment
variables to whatever you've set them to in WinCVS.
