If you are using CVSNT 2.8 (CVS Suite 2009) on Windows/Linux then use:

  cvs ci -A userid abc.txt

Or on windows - if the file abc.txt has the 'owner' userid then:

  cvs ci -a userid abc.txt

In CVSNT a commit has a 'username' as well as a separate 'author name'.

CVSNT is a variation (or branch) of CVS begain in 1998 to implement
features primarily for commercial software developers that were/are not
a part of the CVS project charter.
