Absolute path not allowed

Absolute path not allowed

I used cvs version 1.11(client) and the command
c:\\cvs -d :ext:dan@cvsserver1:/srv/cvs/f rechen/elnrepo log -d "2009-12-08" -r1 "C:\path\filename.txt "
used to work.

Now we upgraded to cvs version 2.0.51d(client/server) and the same command is not working saying that "Absolute path C:\path\filename.txt is not allowed"

How should i modify the command so that will work on the upgraded version of cvs?

This board is for CVS the drugstore, not for computer programming

Isn't the cvs.exe a part of the CVS
