We should probably point out that the whole idea of starting your editor in a Take Command tab is probably completely pointless, unless it is a console-based editor. Most Windows editors aren't.I don't have a console editor so I used FTP.EXE in my tests; it shouldn't matter.
Hello? Vim? (Not GVim, but regular old console Vim.)We should probably point out that the whole idea of starting your editor in a Take Command tab is probably completely pointless, unless it is a console-based editor. Most Windows editors aren't.
If these are exactly Your settings, You should change from "tcmd.exe" to "tcc.exe", right now it seems that You are trying to run Take Command itself, so this might be the reason why it does not work....
My own settings were:
- Title: TCC 16.03
- Command: C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD16x64\tcmd.exe # With and without quotes
- Directory: C:\Users\Tom.000
Don't give up already! You just now provided the info needed to determine the problem.but this simply isn't worth any more of my time.
Well, I guess I forgot to mention that I did indeed change "tcmd.exe" to "tcc.exe" and it had absolutely no ameliorative effect whatsoever; exactly the same hang as before, and this time I had to edit the INI file (with Notepad (!)), and logoff/on in order to recover.Don't give up already! You just now provided the info needed to determine the problem.
Even you must see by now that that simply isn't true. But: I will go down fighting, if I must ... as long as I do my fighting on my own time, I suppose.It should be pretty straight forward
While I have reverted back to my everyday, production INI file each time (the one that's been working just fine for at least a year), I have not hidden it completely -- except for when I need to recover from a truly major foul-up here lately.maybe rename your .ini file out of the way and...Maybe reboot to..?
And dang if that didn't work! I now have TCC running in Tab1 and <my secret> running right alongside in Tab2! AFAIK this only costs me a single tweak that I made manually to my INI file (to set <C-u> to be DelToBeginning). Obviously any other via-menu mods are also gone, but they can be restored as I notice their absence (Insert mode will be first! It always is.)rename your .ini file out of the way and...reboot
@vefatica demonstrated that fact early on ... with pictures ... so the existence of the grail had been proven. It was merely up to me to continue the quest to obtain it for myself.Will TCMD launch successfully with any true console app in its second tab?
