    I'm getting an 'Invalid batch file' error whenever I use batcomp to encrypt a script using TCC 11.00.33 x64. Also failed for TCC 11.00.32 x64.

    Works fine if I use 4NT 8.02.106.
    I'm running Win 7 64 bit.

    Example:

    [M:\Dev\BTM]batcomp hello.btm hello_comp.btm
    Compressing M:\Dev\BTM\hello.btm to M:\Dev\BTM\hello_comp.btm
    Compression completed; file compressed to 166% of original size
    Warning: BATCOMP is not effective at compressing small files!

    [M:\Dev\BTM]hello_comp.btm
    Hello, World

    [M:\Dev\BTM]batcomp /Ekey hello.btm hello_encrypted.btm
    Compressing M:\Dev\BTM\hello.btm to M:\Dev\BTM\hello_encrypted.btm
    Compression completed; file compressed to 166% of original size

    [M:\Dev\BTM]hello_encrypted.btm
    TCC: M:\Dev\BTM\hello_encrypted.btm [0] Invalid batch file

    Same thing here.

    TCC 11.00.33 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    TCC Build 33 Windows XP Build 2600 Service Pack 3

    D:\>echo echo Hello world > hello.btm

    D:\>batcomp /Ekey hello.btm hello_encrypted.btm

    Compressing D:\hello.btm to D:\hello_encrypted.btm
    Compression completed; file compressed to 250% of original size

    D:\>hello_encrypted.btm
    TCC: D:\hello_encrypted.btm [0] Invalid batch file

    This works.

    TCC 10.00.76 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    TCC Build 76 Windows XP Build 2600 Service Pack 3

    Additional info.

    The problem is in the running of the encrypted btm file, not in the encryption itself.

    Proven by running encrypted scripts created by v11 and v8, using v8.
