   (trigger http://warp/u/cathleen/test/xpinstall/patch/install2.jar)
   at command line, verify cvs.exe version by typing "cvs -v"

Jimmy, you might want to create additional binding test case.
The real test of this is to do step 2.5 -- bind the image on your own machine,
particularly if the patch was created on W98 and your testing on NT or vice
versa.

In 4.7 or other smartupdate Communicator versions you'll find "nsbind.exe".
On NT run "nsbind -u cvs.exe" while in the dir where cvs is. If you're on Win9x
do "nsbind -u -o cvs.exe" -- that "o" is *very* important!
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED

Supported on both WinNT and Win98.
