Well, you have an authorization issue - for some reason the cvs login 
command didn't work - see below.

>set path="C:\ProgramFiles\TortoiseCVS"

set path=%path%;"C:\Program Files\TortoiseCVS"

This way it appends the new directory, and does not overwrite the current 

>Set CVSROOT=:pserver:UserName at ComputerName:/Repository

I'd use sspi and avoid to store username/password in a batch file. Just set 
the scheduled activity to run with the proper user.

>CVS login -p UserName

cvs login requires a password, not a username - anyway you could do it once 
outside the batch file - it's not very safe but safer than storing it there.

>CVS -q Checkout -P Module

checkout needs to be done once too - later an update is usually enough.
