Thanks all,
I finally got it working

My erroneous commitinfo entry was:
       DEFAULT  C:\cvsrepo\DepTestClarifyCRM\CVSROOT\commitCheck.pl
The correct commitinfo entry was:
       DEFAULT  perl C:\cvsrepo\DepTestClarifyCRM\CVSROOT\commitCheck.pl

The only difference is the explicit call to the perl interpreter from within
commitinfo - even though my perl script uses the #!/... to define the perl
interpreter and the perl interpreter in the path is the same as the #!..perl

Still confused as to why its like it is.

My commmitinfo is just:

DEFAULT perl d:\scripts\commit_prep.pl -r -i ${CVSPID}

And perl:

This is perl, v5.6.1 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)
