Cannot have both v10 and v11

I selected the option to leave v10 in place when I installed v11 of Take Command. However, the configuration files of the two are incompatible. Once I configured v11, v10 stopped working. You need to rename the
C:\Users\roedy\AppData\Local\JPSoft\TCMD.ini file so that the old v10 version will be left intact when you configure v11.

V10 will not stop working; the worst that you'll see is that you get some
popups about invalid .INI directives (the new ones in v11) when starting
v10.

The reason the .INI files are not version-specific is that it would prevent
people from migrating the TCMD.INI files from older versions to the latest
version. (99% of users replace their old version rather than installing
side-by-side). And for the remaining 1%, you can specify which TCMD.INI you
want to use on the startup command line.

Hi,
I had the same problem. I simply placed the TCMD.ini file in the "C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD10\TCMD.INI"

So, V11 is;

Code:
C>echo "%_ininame"
"C:\Documents and Settings\jlc\Local Settings\Application Data\JPSoft\TCMD.INI"
while V10 is;

Code:
C>echo "%_ininame"
"C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD10\TCMD.INI"
Any mods to either version no longer have a conflict. Have not had a problem since.

Not until V12! I suggest moving the V11's TCMD.INI file to the directory
where TCMD V11 is NOW, and ensure that V12 will not mangle it.

I would even suggest using TCMD12.INI, TCMD13.INI and so on, by default.
If those aren't found, TCMD.INI should be used.

I have used this approach before by appending /@ options to the tcc.exe
command line, but it sometimes gives problems with shells run from other
programs (e.g. MS NMake, Visual Studio etc).

When V12 is available for evaluation, I will definitely be doing that.

Can we be expecting V12 anytime soon? I was hoping that the V11 evaluation would be finished before the V12 evaluation began. :)

I was suggesting that you not wait for an indefinite duration, but do it
now, before the issue is forgotten, and not worry about it in the future.

My suggestion was based on the expectiaon that a V12 will come, and you will
obtain it, not on when in the future it might come. AFAIK Rex has not yet
asked specifically what new features we would like to see in V12, so I
seriously doubt he has started working on it, except perhaps by pushing some
ideas from V11 to the future.

Would it be possible to negate the impact of this going forward (for
v11/v12 compatibility) via a "don't-whine-about-unknown-INI-options"
option?

For my own part, I always end up with a previous version and new version
overlapping while I re-do all my QA tests against my various scripts,
this process usually takes a couple months since I usually take this
opportunity to fix up other nits and annoyances as I go.
