just a hint; checked this :
CVS on Windows complains it cannot find my .cvspass file; why?
For pserver connections, CVS on the client side tries to find the 
.cvspass file in your home directory. Windows machines don't have a 
natural "home" directory, so CVS consults the environment variable 
%HOME%. However, you have to be very careful about how you set HOME. 
This will work:

set HOME=C:

This will not:

set HOME=C:\

That extra backslash is enough to confuse CVS, and it will be unable to 
open C:\\.cvspass.

So, the quick and permanent solution is to put

set HOME=C:

into your autoexec.bat and reboot. CVS pserver should work fine after that.
