    Could everybody who's had the on-again, off-again problem with v.exe not being installed in the 32-bit builds please try updating to build 18 and let me know if it works for you?

    I'm assuming that there isn't a problem with the x64 installer, but if you've had a problem with x64 not installing v.exe please let me know.

    I just updated (OPTION /U) from build 16 to build 18 (I missed 17.) I do have a working V.EXE:

    Code:
    v.exe          E899B518  6313   Fri  9/09/2011  15:33:48  A...      2,191,600
    
    where the 8-digit hex value is the CRC-32.

    I went from 17 to 18 via OPTION /U. No problem.

    Using OPTION /U worked, VIEW operates as intended. However, the beta directory on the FTP site has a 0-byte tcmd.exe (I presume WAD; COPY created a larger trash file here); there is also a tcmdx64.zip left over from last month.

    Checking for updates from inside TCC build 17, it said that there was a new build 18. I said to update, but it gave an error during the download and I could only click cancel. On the ftp site I too see there is a 0 byte tcmd.exe, so I tried again from inside TCC. This time it worked, and v.exe is there.
    Rex, the fact that the first time the download failed and that on ftp the file is empty, does it mean that You are uploading files right now? Have I to download build 18 again later?
    Please le me know.

    Thank You again and regards

    I upgraded from 16 to 18. Build 16
    was missing V.exe, but it is there in build 18.

    [Version 6.1.7601]
    TCC Build 18 Windows 7 Build

    Could everybody who's had the on-again,

    I am getting:

    2011-09-09 16:04:00.000 -2 ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/tcmd.exe

    What does a -2 mean for the file size?

    I'd expect it to mean "file not found". But I can't get it from PDIR.

    Code:
    v:\> pdir /(f^t@filesize[*]^tdy:m:d  th:m:s)
    ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/tcmd.exe
    tcmd.exe        0       2011:09:09  16:04:00
    How are you getting -2?

    Are you talking about one thing or two?

    The only thing that you could test is the updater to v18. (Apparently, it
    works for everybody except you!)

    There isn't any build 18 in the ftp beta area, as I am only interested in
    the updater testing.

    will eventually list beta/tcmd.exe as listed below.

    It seems the "-2" is a side effect of qualifying "z" (size) with "a"
    (allocated). Compare these two, whose only difference is that qualification.
    Maybe allocated = 0 is considered an error or an indication that the file
    doesn't exist. Rex will have to chime in.

    Code:
    v:\> pdir /a:-d /n:e /o:u /s /(zac fpn) ftp://jpsoft.com | grep tcmd.exe
                 -2 ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/tcmd.exe
          8,320,430 ftp://jpsoft.com/tcmd/tcmd.exe
    
    v:\> pdir /a:-d /n:e /o:u /s /(zc fpn) ftp://jpsoft.com | grep tcmd.exe
                  0 ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/tcmd.exe

    OPTION /U did work - so I guess OPTION /U gets the file from somewhere else?

    Here's a shorter version. The server is returning size 0 in both cases.

    v:\> pdir /(zac fpn) ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/????.exe
    -2 ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/tcmd.exe

    v:\> pdir /(zc fpn) ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/????.exe
    0 ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/tcmd.exe

    Hallo Rex,

    build 18 installs the V.exe file. I had the same problems described
    with builds 16 and 17, no v.exe.

    herzliche Grüße,

    Klaus Meinhard

    I'm finding it challenging to run a 0-byte installer...
    Code:
    C:\btm> *dir ftp://ftp.jpsoft.com/beta/
    
     Directory of  ftp://ftp.jpsoft.com/beta/*
    
    2011-09-08  20:42       5,416,888  tccle.exe
    2011-09-08  20:48       5,473,728  tcclex64.exe
    2011-09-09  16:04               0  tcmd.exe
    2011-09-08  20:38       8,624,056  tcmdle.exe
    2011-09-08  20:46       9,376,904  tcmdlex64.exe
    2011-09-08  20:25      10,961,056  tcmdx64.exe
            39,852,632 bytes in 6 files and 0 dirs
    Is it just me?

    You're not supposed to be testing the installer, you're supposed to be
    testing the updater (which retrieves the installer from the web site, not
    the ftp site).

    That's why I didn't put an installer on the ftp site.

    I don't understand -- since there was no file that you could have manually
    downloaded, how could you have installed and had a missing v.exe?
