How can I run tcmd in terminal window only?

I'm an old 4dos user and would prefer to run tcmd in a terminal window only, not in the gui.

How can I do that?

Run TCC instead of TCMD. TCMD is only the GUI, which may contain CMD or TCC
or other console (and some GUI) apps inside.

By running TCC.EXE only, which is the direct successor of 4NT.EXE. Startup command line is (as just about anything) a superset of the 4NT startup.

Run TCC.EXE which will be found in the same directory as TCMD.EXE.

tcc.exe is the current name for what was 4nt. Use tcc.

However, I've found that tcc can be made wider only if attached to tcmd
and there is really no downside to using tcmd.

Unless you are really looking for tccle

Run TCC.EXE, which is the console command processor. (Take Command is the
GUI wrapper for console sessions; you cannot run it in a console window.)

TCC.EXE is the replacement for 4NT.EXE, which was the replacement for 4DOS.

Hello Rex.

I have tried running tcc32.exe in a Windows Explorer window but it flashes briefly but does not load.
I'm running Windows 7 64 bit version.

I also created a shortcut using the command
c:\tsepro\tee32.exe
Note I used tee32.exe because there is no tcc32.exe does not exist in my c:\tsepro window.

Could tcc.exe be somewhere else?
I'm much more used to Linux and my Windows skills are very rusty. Is there a which command in Windows?

Hello again Rex.

I finally found tcc.exe under Program Files.
Help runs and it looks just the old 4NT.

Later I'll move it to something akin to a \bin directory if Windows still has that.

I decided to only use the tcc.exe because TSEPro consistantly crashes after a short period of inactivity. I really hope that gets fixed.

There is no program named "tcc32.exe"; it's just "tcc.exe".

TCC.EXE is the same name whether it's the x64 version or the 32-bit version. You will find it in your Take Command installation directory.

You can set the console size for TCC the same way you would for CMD: Control menu, Properties, Layout. The width and height items under "Screen Buffer Size" control the entire (scrollable) buffer; the width and height under "Window Size" control the visible viewport. Typically you'll want the same width for both, but a much greater height for the window than for the screen buffer.

Oops, I think you meant that the screen buffer should have much greater
height than the window size, it cannot be less. Mine is typically:
window size 142 wide x 57 high
screen buffer 142 wide x 3000 high

Thanks, that helps.

But I am confused when you say that typically I'd want the same width
for both, but a much greater height for the window than for the screen
buffer. By looking at that setting now, I see Screen Buffer Size Height
is 5000, and Window Size Height is 77.

Doesn't that mean that my window height is smaller than my screen buffer
height.

???

You're right. As Steve also pointed out, I bungled that sentence.
