Have you actually gotten it to work in WinCVS or are you talking about the CLI?

OK,  I read the manual and figured out how to get the revision number
inserted into the source file using $Revision$.  What's the trick for
getting $Name$ to work.  I'm using winCVS beta 1.3.  The explorer like

The $Name$ keyword is only expanded when you do a CVS export, or check
out with an explicit tag. $Name$ expands to the name of the tag used to
check out the file. No tag, no expansion.


is the definitive manual, but you may also want to check out:
