It probably isn't sophisticated enough, but TortoiseCVS
( effectively creates new Explorer

than just calling the command line CVS.  They do pop up a progress
GUI. If you're writing an app that users will see rather than a script
that runs in the background, you may prefer it.

There is also a dll cvs2ntlib.dll which comes with WinCVS and
TortoiseCVS.  You could directly call this.  It wouldn't buy you much,
but it does let you set callbacks for displaying output so you can
display it in whatever way you like.
