Hello,
I have a very unusual issue going on and was looking for some advice. I believe it's very likely something to do with my OS/environment. I recently noticed (although I don't believe the issue recently developed) if I open a second tcc.exe window from within a tcc.exe window on my Windows 2012 Server, I see an error indicating: TCC LE has stopped working with the following detail:

Any troubleshooting recommendations? I do not have this problem when I test TCC LE under a similarly configured Windows 7 PC. The issue is repeatable. Thanks!

This might have something to do with DEP (data execution prevention). Go to ControlPanel ... System ...Advanced ... Performance ... Settings ... DEP (at least that's where it is for me). If DEP is on for everything, try exempting TCC from it.

Thanks for the response. I found the setting and it is currently enabled for all applications. When I tried to add TCC.EXE to the exception list I got the following message: You can not set DEP attributes on 64-bit executables. So I wasn't able to take that any further.

Hello there, just a small update to my issue: I'm also seeing this happen on a Windows 10 installation where I previously did not have TCC LE. So as of now for me Win 7 is fine, Win 10 and Windows 2012 Server crash if I attempt to run a second tcc.exe from within a tcc.exe window. Thanks all. --TL

Good morning,

Both Windows 2012 Server and Windows 10 allow me to open a second TCC.exe without error when started with "tcc /i". Further, it looks like "tcc /iipx" still crashes but "tcc /is" does not. I am currently not using a TCSTART or TCEXIT. Sorry for posting in the wrong forum btw. --TL

I'm a little dubious about your not having a TCSTART -- I suspect you're executing one and not knowing it. Note that TCC/LE will first look for a TCSTART.*; if it can't find one it will look for 4START.* (for compatibility with hard-core 4NT users who refuse to rename their files).

Hi Rex,
You are definitely on the right track. I do have a 4START.BTM which contains:
@echo off
setdos /i-list
setdos /i-log
setdos /d"FILES.BBS"

When the above is in either C:\4START.BTM or C:\TCSTART.BTM, my attempts to open a second TCC shell fail as previously described. If I remove the 4START/TCSTART BTM and try again, the subsequent shell(s) open without error! Thank you for the keen troubleshooting. Anything particularly bad in the above set of commands?

Tim
