equivalent to TCSTART.btm for TCMD?

I use tcc.exe about 99.99% of the time. But for the infrequent time when I want to start up TCMD, I noticed that it doesn't seem to run my TCSTART.btm file like a TCC window does. Is this expected? If not, is there an equivalent (say, TCMD.btm)? Note: I'm using TCC 16.03.55 x64 Windows 8.1 [Version 6.3.19043].

The aliases that are loaded through the tcstart.btm processes aren't getting loaded. I just assumed it wasn't being run. I guess I'll throw some debugging into the tcstart and see what I can find out.

Rex mostly hit on the solution. It turns out I had installed in two folders, so when I ran TCC, it ran from one location, while when I ran TCMD, it ran from the other. Only the first one had all of my TCSTART.BTM, alias and function definition files. I've cleaned up my installations so there's only one, and now everything works. Thanks, team!
