Missing CVS Windows Client

I posted a while back about the missing cvs.exe that used to be available for download. Does anybody know where you can get that?

The last response was that CVSNT had a command line client. That sounds like a sub-optimal work-around for a problem that was artificially created in the first place. In any event I downloaded the zip file and ran cvs.exe since I cannot locate the original. It complained about a DLL missing... then another...then another.

Am I missing something? The old cvs.exe just worked. There was no extra baggage. Why was it removed?

Side note. CVSNT is perplexing. If you have an existing CVS repository keep it on Linux or OS X or what have you. If you are starting a new project use Subversion per Perforce. I see no purpose for CVSNT to exist anymore.

TIA
