New startup problem...

After Windows did its update today, I am getting a nastygram at TCC startup that says

Error on line 91 of C:\Users\Harvey\AppData\Local\JPSoft\TCMD.INI:
Invalid choice value for "FirewallType"
Press any key when ready...

Looking at that line and the following line I see

FirewallType=P
FirewallPort=1028

Now I have not the foggiest idea what that means and the manual does not make it any easier. For a firewall, I use a combination of the Windows firewall and Trend Micro Internet Security. I see that there is a setting in the Option command for firewall things, but I have not the vaguest idea what to put there.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

FirewallType is an integer value from 0 to 3. FirewallPort defaults to
1080. I have no idea how you got a 'P' there, but I would suggest going to
OPTION and selecting "none" for your firewall type.

Something very wrong here!!! I did as you said and set the firewall type to none with the option command and now those two lines TCMD.INI read

FirewallType=ProxyPort
FirewallPort=1024

and I still get the same nastygram on startup. Should I set Firewall Type to 0 with the text editor?

OPTION is putting that value there. Try this:

* Rename or delete TCMD.INI. Close all instances.

* Start TCC, then run OPTION. Select the "Internet" tab. Make some trivial change (e.g. space and then backspace in the SMTP server field.) Press OK, then exit TCC.

* Start TCC again. See the error message?


(If I then try to use OPTION to change the firewall type to None, OPTION writes a value of "ProxyPort" for FirewallType. A typo somewhere?)

This same problem has been driving me nuts on a new machine I've been
setting up. I couldn't understand why these errors kept popping up. I
hope build 33 solves that problem.

I can't reproduce this in build 33. (The value being written for the FirewallType= directive is the string "None", not the integer 0.... Doesn't cause an error message, though, so I guess it's kosher.)

O.K. When will Build 33 be released? All that I see there is Build 32, which definitely gives me the error and seemingly also other people.

Strange as I have been running Build 32 for over a week and I never saw the error until Microsoft did the 9 fix update today. Apparently something in there did not agree with TCC Build 32.

I downloaded B33 on 2009-11-10 at 20:14 EST (2009-11-11 @ 01:14 UTC) from
the ftp site.

It was released last night, about 3 1/2 hours before you posted your
message. If you do a "Check for Updates" in TCMD it will show build 33.

Yes, I guess that I just did not update the download page in the browser. Sorry about that. I have it now and it does seem to fix the problem. Thanks!!
