I overlooked one thing in your file:
This will not work since you are using backslashes, this is an escape
Should look like this instead:
provided the $CVSROOT is legal syntax, which I don't know.
Why not do it like this instead for testing:
DEFAULT D:/cvsrepo/attoTest/CVSROOT/msgtemplate.txt

The error message about not finding the file points towards the
filespec being in error.
