If the file is already in CVSNT then:
D:\>workspace>cvs -d :pserver:user at host:/Moveo co Project
D:\>workspace>cd Project
D:\>workspace>Project>cvs up -k+x A.txt
D:\>workspace>Project>cvs ci -f -m "new mode" A.txt

To set the default for new files then use cvswrappers.

Once 'x' mode is on you will need to do this to change a file:
D:\>workspace>cvs -d :pserver:user at host:/Moveo co Project

D:\>workspace>cd Project
D:\>workspace>Project>cvs edit A.txt

a notepad opened .. and i edit few lies. Then

D:\>workspace>Project>cvs commit -m "these many changes i did" A.txt
Checking in A.txt;
/Moveo/Project/A.txt,v  <--  A.txt
new revision: 1.9; previous revision: 1.8
