Hi,
I am using tcc/le v13.05.68 under windows 7 enterprise.
When I issue the telnet command I get:
TCC: Unknown command "telnet"
IF I issue the telnet command under CMD, it works.

Other commands (like ftp) work.

If I search for telnet.exe, I find it in C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-telnet-client_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_1426830c3ebb712d\telnet.exe

If I search for ftp.exe, I find it in:
C:\Windows\System32\ftp.exe
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ftp.exe
C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-ftp_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_no
ne_08e04f97723b045d\ftp.exe
C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-ftp_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_no
ne_0b11635f6f2987f7\ftp.exe
C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-ftp_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none
_acc1b413b9dd9327\ftp.exe
C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-ftp_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none
_aef2c7dbb6cc16c1\ftp.exe

What can the problem be?

Thanks

Hi Joe.
These are the results:
[C:\Temp]which /a ftp
ftp is an external : C:\Windows\system32\ftp.exe
[C:\Temp]which /a telnet
telnet is an unknown command

'telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Anothing thing:
If I look at c:\windows\system32 using tcc/le, I don't see telnet.exe
If I look at c:\windows\system32 using windows explorer, I see it.

I am running 64bit Windows.
I think tcc/le is 32bit (I'm not sure since the computer is at work, and I'm home right now).
Telnet Clinet is installed. It runs find from CMD.

Here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_programs/telnet-not-working-windows-7-64-bit/5e789624-cfc2-4046-85e2-1b1f82a6e8de I read this:

O.K.  This time I REALLY found the problem.  It was the command line interpreter that I use, JPSoft's TCC.  It is necessary to turn off Win64 File System Redirection.  All is working now.  Thanks!!!
I think that installing the x64 build is probably a better solution. x64 Windows hides not only parts of the filesystem, but chunks of the registry as well, from 32-bit programs.
