You're using Windows, right? If so, you'll need to specify a full
cygwin-style path. If your CVS repository is installed on your "C"
drive, then you should specify the path as

If it's still not working, then try accessing your repository from the
command prompt using Cygwin CVS. On Windows, JCVSReport will only work
if Cygwin CVS is installed and is on your path.

NOTE: Bloof uses colons as a record separator in paths, so it does not
accept paths that contain colons. Thus, JCVSReport will only work with
the paths that use the "/cygdrive/c" syntax.



P.S. Thanks for including your config file in this email -- it made it
really easy to diagnose your problem.
