Attempting to run commandline telnet under 64bit windows-7 results in a program not found error.

I have 'enabled' the telnet client and the telnet client application is found and launched correctly from the primative/stock windoze command shell.

I have been dealing with this issue for a long time and hoped it had been noticed or maybe addressed in the latest version.

This is a Windows "feature" -- 32-bit apps cannot see apps in 64-bit directories (such as the badly misnamed c:\windows\system32 directory).

The fix is easy -- download the 64-bit version of Take Command.
