What CVSROOT are you using - ie: when you do a checkout from TortoiseCVS
what is the 'protocol' etc you are using, eg:
   :pserver:user at mypc:/CVSRepository

Note: the :local: protocol should never under any circumstances be used
- it is only for CVS Developers.

If you do not already have CVSNT server running on your repository
server then you should install CVSNT Server and use the sspi or pserver
protocols.  I believe that TOrtoiseCVS 1.10 may already install the
server, but then disable the server in the services control panel.  Go
to Control Panels->Administrative Tools->Services and look for the CVSNT
Dispatch service and the CVSNT Lock service - they should both be
running and set for "automatic" start.
