more.com stops working

For some reason TCC today said that more.com did not exist any more.

It exists in both C:\windows\windows32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64 I could run it from C:\windows\windows32.

The path contained C:\windows\windows32.

I fixed the problem by moving C:\windows\windows32 to the head of the path.

I don't know why this worked. I share this fix in case it happens to you.

Here is my path:
%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;F:\Program Files (X86)\jet7.0-pro\bin;E:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_18\bin;F:\Program Files (X86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin;E:\env;E:\sys;F:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD;F:\Program Files\vslick\win;F:\Program Files (x86)\apache-ant-1.8.0RC1\bin;E:\com\mindprod\reorg;F:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin;F:\program files (x86)\asm

I'd try WHICH /A MORE and see if one of the other places in the path has
another more command. Then I'd try running each in sequence to see if it
gave the same error message you found.
