Post subject: CVS
I'm getting a 'error fetching tags from remove cvs files' error when I try to compare two sources (one on my laptop and the other on a cvs repository on the server). Appreciate any help.

Moving to OT > Soft Dev, this is not related to MyEclipse.
Did this just start recently after something you did? Have you tried updating then attempting to compare?

Not really. I checked out some code from a CVS server, did some development, and wanted to compare my version with the one on the server just to avoid overwriting someone else's changes ( committed afer I checked out the source). That's when I get this error.

You might try running an "Update" first to pull down all the changes and then attempt a compare. CVS is really pissy when you attempt to perform operations (commit, delete, etc.) on files that are not completely up to sync with the repository. I've found so many time flakly weird CVS issues were simply the result of me either needing to (a) Update or (b) Checkout a new clean copy of the code.
