    On W7 there seems to be a problem with PSUBST. After using it to assign a:, the following message appeared then I tried to unassign it
    :\howard\working>psubst/d a:
    TCC: (Sys) The specified program requires a newer version of Windows.
    "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\DOS Devices"

    Also PSUBST with no arguments gives the /= screen both when there is and is not any substitutions.
    The help description for PSUBST says PRIORITY rather than PSUBST in the documentation for the /= opetion.

    Not reproducible here.

    What version of TCC are you running? And are you running TCC elevated? (It won't work in a non-elevated session.)

    I don't know about all the complaints, but in v21,
    1. PSUBST with no parameters opens the command dialog
    2. The text is wrong when the help describes the "/=" option.

    Should also consider adding PSUBST to the help index.
