Try this in TCC v14.02.44: Type OPTION and press Enter. Select the "Advanced" tab. Make any change, or none at all; click on OK. Then try to execute any command followed by an argument.

C:\>ver /r

C:\>ver /r
TCC: Unknown command "ver"

C:\>set path
TCC: Unknown command "set"

C:\>echo foo
TCC: Unknown command "echo"

C:\>dir *
TCC: Unknown command "dir"


This is behavior appeared quite recently. I'm pretty sure that build 42 didn't do it. Nor does the current TCC/LE.
