I'm not familiar with tkcvs but WinCVS and TortoiseCVS both include
CVSNT for Windows.  

CVSNT is free (open source GPL just like CVS) and can be downloaded

As Conrad pointed out most CVS testing is done on Unix.  CVSNT is tested
extensively on Windows, Mac OS X, HPUX, Solaris and IBM iSeries (OS400).

You should direct any questions to the free open source CVSNT newsgroup:
