id3.exe, that appears to be my old command line id3 tagger utility. I put
that together several years ago from the id3lib examples.  See usage

This zip http://www.muzikbrowzer.com/dl/id3.zip contains 

id3.cpp - source for id3 command line util (builds against id3lib
id3 - linux binary
id3.exe - win32 binary
mbtag.exe - adds wma, ogg and flac support



$ id3
id3 [options] <file> # w/out options display tag info.  options:
     -v      <value> # id3 version (1 or 2)
     -dt             # delete tag (version 1 or 2 if specified else both
     -df     <value> # delete tag field
     -getart <value> # getart, writes to <file>
     -TCON   <value> # genre
     -TPE1   <value> # artist
