I cannot use links to .btm files

Since a time I was nospool.btm to cancel printer jobs

@rem nospool.btm
net stop spooler del
%systemroot%\System32\Spool\impresoras\*.shd del
%systemroot%\System32\Spool\impresoras\*.spl del
%systemroot%\System32\Spool\PRINTERS\*.shd del
%systemroot%\System32\Spool\PRINTERS\*.spl net start spooler

I added a link in Desktop to access nospool, and it worked by two
years. I call this "link+mouse" mode.

But with the version 24, the link is not working, the Explorer and
Total Commander are ineffective, too. Only a short flash on screen and
nothing happen.

The command works, both TCMD and TCC process it and delete the spool
contents, "nospool <CR>"


If the link is to nospool.bat, with nospool.bat being identical to
nospool.btm, the link works.


There are other links to xx.btm that are not working, and a copy to
xx.bat fails too.

For example,

@rem apagar.btm
reboot /s

fails in "link+mouse" mode.

Is this a problem with the plane, or it is a pilot mistake (the more
probable)?.

It might be the plane. With v24, build 29, on Win7/32, I have this (which is not correct).
Code:
v:\> assoc .btm
.btm=TCC.Batch

v:\> ftype tcc.batch
tcc.batch="" /c "%%1" %%*

It's better on Win10/64
Code:
tcc.batch="C:\apps\tc24\tcc.exe" /c "%%1" %%*

After fixing it once, I have this again (win7/32 only).
Code:
v:\> ftype tcc.batch
tcc.batch="" /c "%%1" %%*

Since this thread started on 12/22 and by b29 files (current) are dated 12/20 I can only presume the last time this happened was also with b29. What could be clobbering tcc.batch's shell\open action?

Never mind. I know what happened. I repaired the installation trying to fix the stuff mentioned in the "Yipes, pipes!" thread. So build 29 was installed again.
