Batcomp Encryption Error

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.
