Did you notice that warning message???
Your user addition is flawed right there mecause you have added a
non-system user to cvs (you invented the user 'Andrei') and cvs will
not be able to use that login until you tell it which real user to
alias to when Andrei logs on.
See the cvs manual for the cvs passwd command.

Who told you to do any cvs commands at all *inside* the repository???
All cvs commands are supposed to be issued from a *checked out*
sandbox containing the module files and folders you want to operate

- Check out your repository to some location on your C: drive
- Go there and execute the cvs commands.
