Problem at Startup of TCC

Feb 21, 2009
When I try to start TCC from the icon on the desktop, I get an error message (see attachment). When I go to the subject file, I see


That obviously does not pass the smell test, putting the display on Uranus or such. Can I just set the values in tcmd.ini to zero or such? After a couple of Enters, it does start up (subject to my continuing problem of a squib immediately after a Windows update that you cannot duplicate) but this is another annoyance.

CDDWinLeft and CDDWinTop don't seem to be used. Instead, these change when I move the DirHistory popup.

Editing TCMD.INI and setting PopupWinLeft and PopupWinTop to 0 and starting a new TCC causes the DirHistory window to align with the left/top of the TCC console window.

CDDWinxxx are used when you pass a wildcard name to CD or CDD. You can delete the bad entries and TCC will use the default values.
Hmmm! Was that feature ever touted; is it mentioned in the help? The help says
If Search Level = 0, extended searches are disabled, the JPSTREE.IDX database is ignored, and CD, CDD, PUSHD and
automatic directory changes search for directories using only explicit names and CDPATH. This is the default.
I have SearchLevel=0 (in the option dialog, nothing in the INI file), but I get the popup if I
