How did you install them?
TortoiseCVS comes with its own CVSNT client install. With latest 
CVSNT versions, you can't have more than one CVSNT installation on 
the same machine. So mixing them may be problematic.
You should install CVSNT first, and then Tortoise; this way Tortoise 
recognizes the current CVSNT install and uses it.
Try uninstalling Tortoise, reinstalling CVSNT over itself (not needed 
really, just to be sure all dependencies are available), and then 
reinstall Tortoise.

Anyway, if you are going to use it *only* on your local machine, 
TortoiseCVS is the only thing you need; no need to setup CVS first.
