OSD error

Hi,
I am using;

Code:
TCC  13.01.31   Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
TCC Build 31   Windows XP Build 2600  Service Pack 3
Registered to me
For the past month or so, I have been getting an un-reproducable error when using the OSD command.

TC does not close down, nor does TCC.

No TCMD.GPF file is created.

I use the command thus;

Code:
osd /Font=36 /TIME=30 /HCENTER /BOTTOM 06012867-99 &
This command is used in a .BTM file, and is detached so that processing can continue while the text is visible on the monitor.

I have been using it since TC11, but have not experienced this problem until this version of TC.

When the error occurs, a dialog box pops up on the screen, wanting to send a debug report. It contains the following;

Code:
Error signature

AppName: tcc.exe   AppVer 13.0.1.31   ModName: tcc.exe
ModVer: 13.0.1.31  Offset: 000067c4
As I say, the occurrence is random, and usually works if I execute the batch file again.

Not reproducible here. The reason you don't see a TCMD.GPF is because it's
crashing in the Microsoft startup code, before any of the TCC code is
executed. Without a reproducible failcase or a stack trace it will probably
be impossible to trace or fix it (or more likely to kludge around whatever
MS bug it's triggering).

But I don't understand your underlying intent here -- is there some reason
you're detaching a process instead of just using the /N option?

The reason I am detaching a process instead of just using the /N option is because I missed this in the command line help, that is;

Code:
osd /?

On Screen Display.

OSD [/C /FONT=n /N /POS=n,n /RGB=r,g,b /TIME=n /TOP /LEFT /BOTTOM /RIGHT /HCENTER /VCENTER /V] text
    /C(lose)        /RGB (text color)
    /FONT (font height)    /TIME (display time)
    /POS (top left)        /V(ertical)
As the /N option is not documented in the same amount of detail as when I use

Code:
help osd
which shows

Code:
/N Don't wait for timeout before returning to the prompt
I completely missed it. I have modified my batch file so that the OSD command uses /N, and not one failure yet after three successful runs. Many thanks for pointing this out.
