You want to checkout (or, in this case, update) the file
BhCtrl/BHTypes/BHTypes.csproj from the repository, but this file is
already in your sandbox. Unfortunately, the file is not under control of
CVS. Thus, CVS does not want to overwrite it, as you might loose the
file if it is totally different to what is checked out here.

Have you copied the file "by hand" into the sandbox?

You can rename the file BHTypes.csproj to something different and look
what CVS checks out for you.

Furthermore, I have seen this problem on the CVSHOME version of CVS on
Windows systems if there are files in the repository which differ only
in the case. Well, IIRC, it was more if there are directories which only
differ by case.

For more details, see the thread I started here
