I believe the issue here is that the home directory is not being set 
properly, so attempts to create "c:\/.cvspass" are failing.

Try this: set CVS_PASSFILE to some known path and DOS-friendly filename 
(although that last isn't required, it simplifies things if you want to 
look at the file from DOS). For example, if you have a C:\TEMP directory 
and are running in a DOS box, type "set CVS_PASSFILE=c:\temp\passfile.cvs".

Then try logging in using CVS. You should find a new passfile.cvs file in 
your temp directory, and as long as you have that environmental variable 
set you should be able to use the Apache CVS server without logging in again.
