You don't use \ inside CVS scripts. Use / instead:

If you really want to use \ then you have to double them like you did,
but why bother???

Network paths like UNC paths or mapped drive letters cannot be used by
the CVSNT server because as Tony said it runs as the local service,
which by design has no permissions at all on the network.
So scripts executed by CVSNT server cannot go outside the confines of
the local computer the server runs on.
