You have two errors in your setup as far as I can see:

1) You have specified a repository prefix on the server but you are
not using that in your connections. If you have a repository prefix of
e:/cvs/cvsrepo and a repository at e:/cvs/cvsrepo/test then the
connection cvsroot string should be like this:
  :pserver:user at server:/test
Note that the part that is eaqual to the prefix should not be used,
otherwise CVSNT will be looking for a repository at:
  e:/v=B4cvs/cvsrepo/c:/cvs/cvsrepo/test which of course is nonworking

2) You have set up the server wrong too, from the registry entries you
have a repository root at e:/cvs/cvsroot but your first repository is
also set to this location. ("Repository0"=="E:/cvs/cvsrepo")
This is wrong, repositories should *start* below the prefix, they
should all be like the E:/cvs/cvsrepo/test repository, otherwise it
will be hard to separate them, effectively one repository becomes part
of another and this is clarly wrong.
Remove the first repository and create a new in parallel to test
