Take Command Tutorials
Our web site includes more than 20 tutorials on configuring and using Take Command and TCC.

We're currently working on some exciting new video tutorials to be released over the next few months. If you would like to see tutorials on specific topics, please email us at

Feedback and Suggestions
We have added a little orange tab on the left side of the JP Software web and forum pages labeled “Feedback”. Clicking on this tab launches a JavaScript widget that takes you to our Feedback forum.

Every user is given 20 votes, which they can spend on submitting their own new ideas, or voting on other ideas they would like to see implemented. When an idea is accepted or rejected by JP Software, the user gets their vote back. This provides a way for users to prioritize their favorite ideas, without being drowned out by a vocal minority of other users.

The Feedback forum will also match your suggestions against previous suggestions, to reduce the number of duplicate entries. You can discuss and develop suggestions via the comment threads, so that by the time we’re ready to implement an idea it has already been fully thought out.

Take Command 13.0 Released

We believe Take Command v13 is the best Windows command line and scripting software on the market today. In v13, we have focused primarily on user interface improvements. Now the most powerful Windows command line environment is also the easiest to use.

Make sure to check out the two special offers at the bottom of this email.

Key v13 features include:

  More Speed -- The fastest Windows command line processor is faster. Display output speed and file read and write operations have been optimized even more than v12.
  Installation -- Take Command now supports installation and registration on removable disks (for example, USB flash drives). You can use Take Command on different systems just by plugging in your flash drive.
  New in the TCC Command Processor -- 5 new internal commands, 48 enhanced internal commands, 104 new internal command options, and 78 new or enhanced internal variables and variable functions.
  Command Dialogs -- Most of the internal TCC file handling commands have an alternate dialog form. This simplifies invoking commands when using some of the more obscure options (including ranges and attributes), and also allows you to test commands and copy the generated command line to your batch files.
  File Viewer -- v13 adds VIEW, a replacement for LIST that is based on V, the best text and binary file viewer available for Windows. VIEW adds hundreds of new features, including split file views, rulers, gridlines, multiple hex mode formats, EBCDIC file support, and advanced printing options.
  Popup Windows -- All of the popup windows (history lists, filename completion, @select, etc) have an edit control on the toolbar. Entering a search string will eliminate non-matching entries from the window, making it much easier to find the entries you want.
  Enhancements -- v13 adds more than 400 new features to our existing commands and functions.

See the full list on the “What’s New” page in the v13 online help.

Upgrading from any prior version of Take Command, TCC, 4NT or 4DOS is only $49.95. (Upgrading from v12 to v13 is free for registered v12 users who ordered within the last 60 days, or who have an Extended Support contract. If you believe you should have gotten a free update and haven't received your 13.0 key, please contact us.)

Offer 1 -- As an added inducement, we are allowing current users of Take Command or TCC / 4NT to purchase additional licenses at the upgrade price, including volume discounts. That's right. Instead of $99.95 for additional licenses, you can get them for $49.95 or less. So, if you want to add some additional licenses, now is the time. For example, if you have 5 licenses and want to add an additional 5, just order 10 upgrades and get them for the volume discount price of $36 per copy.

Offer 2 -- We are also offering a "Friends and Family" $30 discount on new copy prices using discount code "FandF30". The price is only $69.95 after discount. Feel free to forward this email to friends you think might benefit from the power of Take Command.
