cscript.exe is not cmd.exe, ensure SYSTEM and the current user have access 
to cscript.exe

Note: whilst the cvs.exe server process does run as SYSTEM it 'impersonates' 
the client user - so both need access to the .exe that is running.

Also 'active scripting' plugin does not need to be enabled if you are simply 
calling via commitinfo.  Active scripting allows you to write a much more 
complex script, with pre-defined 'function' names that get called directly 
from CVSNT server, I think there are examples in the newsgroup history a 
couple of years ago, and I'm not going to go trawling for them myself... 
Just disable the active scripting and give execute access to cscript.exe.
