    In a stand-alone 4NT window in:

    TCC 10.00.59 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    TCC Build 59 Windows XP Build 2600 Service Pack 3
    Registered to Carl Johnson - 1 System License

    I get the following Event Viewer Application Error when executing DIR /Z on at least one directory. Works ok on some other directories I tried. I viewed the DESCRIPT.ION file for the directory with LIST thinking there might be a bad record in the file but I don't see anything obvious, although I don't know specifically what to look for that might cause this problem.

    This as an addendum to my original post.

    I initially forgot that I still have 4NT V6.01.241A (need for FILEWRITEB in some BTMs) and 4NT V8.01.70 installed, so I tried the DIR /Z command in the V10 "problem directory" and the command worked properly in both the above mentioned older 4NT versions.

    DIR /Z Causes Application Error In At Least One, But Not All, Directories

    Not reproducible here. Can you email me the DESCRIPT.ION file for that
    directory?

    I figured it would be difficult to resolve this problem without the DESCRIPT.ION file, but I was hoping that maybe the exception address would provide a clue. Unfortunately that directory is on a TrueCrypt volume and the DESCRIPT.ION file includes many passwords that I don't want to send. Since I can view the DESCRIPT.ION file with LIST and my text editor I could edit out all the passwords but then the file would be different. I suppose I could change all the passwords in all the different places after sending the file but that would be a hassle.

    I think what I'm going to do for now is to create a temporary TrueCrypt volume and move the files one-by-one to the temporary volume and run DIR /Z after each move to hopefully isolate the problem.

    Thanks for the reply,
    Carl

    I need a stack trace, not just a single address (which in this case just
    points to a utility function that's called in several hundred places).

    Normally if TCC crashes, it creates a TCC.GPF file that has the stack
    trace & all of the register values.
