    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.

    TCC 13.01.32 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7600]

    [c:\temp]telnet
    TCC: Unknown command "telnet"

    [c:\temp]

    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.

    I didn't even notice that a 64-bit version was posted...

    Thank-you, works fine.
