Using VB (I would think that there would have to be a faster way using API) this seems to work for me, but you may need to double check me.

Private Sub TreeView1_NodeCheck(ByVal Node As MSComctlLib.Node)
 
CheckNodes Node, Node.Checked

End Sub

Sub CheckNodes(ByVal Node As MSComctlLib.Node, ByVal Check As Boolean)
Dim I As Integer
Dim nodChild As Node

If Node.Children Then
   Set nodChild = Node.Child
End If
For I = 1 To Node.Children
   nodChild.Checked = Check
   CheckNodes nodChild, Check
   Set nodChild = nodChild.Next
Next

End Sub

The following code may be a bit more efficient:

Private Sub TreeView1_NodeCheck(ByVal Node As MSComctlLib.Node)

If Node.Children Then
   CheckNodes Node, Node.Checked
End If

End Sub

Sub CheckNodes(ByVal Node As MSComctlLib.Node, ByVal Check As Boolean)
Dim I As Integer
Dim nodChild As Node
Dim intChildren as Integer

Set nodChild = Node.Child
intChildren = Node.Children
For I = 1 To intChildren
  nodChild.Checked = Check
  If nodChild.Children Then
     CheckNodes nodChild, Check
  End If
  If I < intChildren Then  'The last one will not have a next sibling
     Set nodChild = nodChild.Next
  End If
Next

Set nodChild = Nothing

End Sub

You should also note there is a bug with the NodeCheck event.  Here is the MSDN article that describes a workaround:
