Did you set your HOME environment variable?

>From the CVS documentation:

| `$HOME'
| `$HOMEPATH'
| `$HOMEDRIVE'
|      Used to locate the directory where the `.cvsrc' file, and other
|      such files, are searched.  On Unix, CVS just checks for HOME.  On
|      Windows NT, the system will set HOMEDRIVE, for example to `d:' and
|      HOMEPATH, for example to `\joe'.  On Windows 95, you'll probably
|      need to set HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH yourself.

(I don't use CVS on Windows, so I don't know whether this really works.)
