First I tried the automatic upgrade (option /u) ... got this:

The previous build was uninstalled. Then I DL'd TCMD.EXE from the beta directory, tried to install, and got this (don't understand the 64-bit address):

Code:

The first three times I tried to install, BTM (and only BTM) was pre-checked (never saw that before). I left it checked. All three failed (see my other post).

The fourth time, I unchecked it (in the past I always left all three unchecked). The install succeeded.

I should have added, when all was said and done, btm_auto_file was still handled by v12 ... so the BTM option, which I left checked the first three install attempts, was either never reached, or didn't work.

That's handled by Windows Installer, not me. Since it apparently isn't working 100% reliably on all systems, I've removed it from the installer for v13.

My installs have so far gone quite smoothly.
However, given Vince's remarks about the .BTM association I decided
to see what my installation had done. It has issues.

I had .BTM checked, .CMD and .BAT unchecked.

Code:
[C:\TC13] assoc .btm
.BTM=JP Software.Take Command 13.0.BTM

[C:\TC13] ftype "JP Software.Take
Command 13.0.BTM"
TCC: File type not found or no open
command associated with "JP Software.Take Command 13.0.BTM"

I was off-base there. I only looked at btm_auto_file (where I had recently been
in RegEdit) expecting that to have changed. I was not aware that you use a
different file type and I didn't check the type of ".BTM". So I really have no
idea whether the installer did what it was supposed to do or not.

What is "btm_auto_file" anyway ... is it the result of my manually making the
BMT association?
