Don't use loginfo, the calls are made before CVSNT releases the locks
on the files.
Use postcommit instead.
I use it on a website module by updating a checked out copy of the
site whenever a file is committed. After a few tweaks it works pretty

Make sure your scripted batch file sets the current drive and dir
before executing anything. When CVSNT calls the scripts the current
dir is in the repository side.
