    Vertical scroll bar disappeared with SCREEN

    I gather that when you start it from Explorer, TCC (not TCMD) starts. ... right? Is the program a BTM ... a BAT? Find out how it's run like this. v:\> assoc .btm .btm=TCC.Batch v:\> ftype tcc.batch tcc.batch="G:\tc16\tcc.exe" /c "%1" %* Then, from Explorer, run the program that runs your...

    Vertical scroll bar disappeared with SCREEN

    How are you waiting (for "DONE")? What makes you think SCREEN is the culprit?

    PSHELL /C

    My filename has "x86" where yours has "x64". It exports the functions you listed. PSHostClose/PSHostDestroy seem likely for "PSHELL /C". I can't catch any functions in that DLL with WinDbg. Do you see any practical consequence of "PSHELL /C"?

    PSHELL /C

    And using PSHELL for the first time seems to start several threads (7 or 8). A few of them go away on their own, but "PSHELL /C" itself doesn't get rid of any of them. I see the likes of this (below, a newly started TCC) which I can't explain. v:\> echo threads: %_nthreads^thandles...

    PSHELL /C

    I wonder what "PSHELL /C" does? It doesn't free any DLLs, and it doesn't reduce TCC's handle count (in fact, it typically increases it).

    What happens to PSHELL after 20 seconds?

    I just got the latest (apparently) for Win7\32 (same as Joe's). v:\> pshell /s $PSVersionTable Name Value ---- ----- PSVersion 5.1.14409.1005 PSEdition Desktop PSCompatibleVersions {1.0...

    How do I update Powershell?
  8. V

    START *command

    Already did that ... so it's finding redir.exe. If it means to use wildcards (bad idea), why doesn't it execute redir.exe?

    What happens to PSHELL after 20 seconds?

    As I said, automating the test produces various (not very consistent) results, sometimes with no failures. The best way is to do it at a prompt, over and over, waiting various amounts of times.

    START *command

    It seems odd that START would use wildcards. START's help doesn't mention it. And it doesn't work even if a matching file exists. v:\> start *pconfig TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the file specified. "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\*PCONFIG.EXE"

    START *command

    Why does it focus on C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\?

    What happens to PSHELL after 20 seconds?

    In another thread there's a discussion of PSHELL's current directory not automatically following TCC's current directory. I experimented with several aliases to get such following to happen and I kept running into the same oddity. I won't use an alias here. Take this command, for example...
  14. V

    START *command

    With this alias v:\> alias dir *dir /a /p /m /k /h /ne I can "START DIR" and I get a new console in which the alias is executed. "*dir" works in the current instance to give the built-in DIR command. But if I try to START "*DIR", I get an error I don't understand. v:\> start *dir TCC: (Sys)...

    .PS1 script does not work with PSHELL

    You might experiment with that. I had occasional errors, apparently from trying to access the PS interface twice in rapid succession. v:\> alias pshell `*pshell %@pshell[set-location %_cwd]` v:\> pshell /s get-location PSHELL: System.Management.Automation.PSInvalidOperationException : The...
