Please read the FAQ:

The FAQ indicates that you should search the bug database.

The bug database already contains an explanation of this problem with a
known solution:

> I am in China, we use files with Chinese name. The client is 
> Wincvs2.0.24,
> after update to CVSNT 2.5.04, 

Have you upgraded the server or the client?  I think you are probably
still running the 2.0.51 client and using the 2.5.04 server.  

WinCVS is NOT A CLIENT.  CVSNT is the client and WinCVS runs it.
Upgrade your CVSNT client please.

Upgrade the client and the server and the problem will go away, or
upgrade the server to 2.5.05 and set the options as described in bug

> I try to add ' encoding="UTF-8"' to the first line of

NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER modify your repository.  The repository is
like an Oracle database - noone would open oracle database files and
make changes using notepad - and you shouldn't with the CVSNT
