Don't let the terminology confuse you -- any time you specify a tag to

didn't realize it.

Looks like that was the case.

The problem here is that you checked out a particular revision rather
than a branch.  You can only commit to a branch.  From what you've said,
you probably want to update to the rev6_3 branch, then you'll be able to
commit your changes.

What I was afraid of losing changes by using cvs update. As part of the commit, I had added a new folder that was not part of the version control.

  cd \local\wc5
  cvs add wciocp
  cd wciocp
  cvsadd *.cpp *.h *.dsp *.rc  # batch file to add file specs.

and some how I got into a situation where the wciocp were in the
"attic" because of the sticky tag. It threw me all off. But I wasn't worry about this new folder than I was for existing folders where the commit error occurred.

I have it resolved now.

Thanks for your input Larry.
