The option for cvs 1.11.7 is an uppercase -B, not a lowercase -b. See

The -B switch (as opposed to the -b switch) was introduced by cvs
version 1.11.2 from the site, so it may indeed be necessary
for you to go to the server to delete that tag or for you to use a
cvs.exe based on cvs version 1.11.2 (or newer) from the
sources such as the one available here:

As I understand it, this problem was fixed in [bug 22] on the CvsNT
site and any version of CvsNT with tag.c version 1.16 which would be
CVSNT_1_11_1_3_70 or newer has this support.

You may wish to upgrade to CVSNT 2.0.11 on your client machines.
You may fetch it from the web site Here:

be advised that I am not a Windows user and I have never used CvsNT, so
in your situation it may not be wise to upgrade...

        Good luck,
