Sort-of Missing Switch for START in Help

Hi,
I am using;

Code:
TCC  14.00.15  Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
TCC Build 15  Windows XP Build 2600  Service Pack 3

In the local help file, there are two /D options for START. Should the second /D be /Desktop?

I noticed that too (before reading your post).

Does START /DESKTOP work for you?

Nope. I created a new desktop, thus;

Code:
desktop /c jlc

desktop by itself shows;

Code:
jlc
Default
Disconnect
Winlogon

When I do;

Code:
start /desktop=jlc sol.exe

Solitaire starts in my Default desktop, not in jlc desktop.

I switch to

Code:
desktop jlc

and no solitaire.

Interesting! I've never seen "Disconnect" and "Winlogon" listed among the desktops. What's your OS and admin status?

As I said in my first post of this thread;

Code:
TCC  14.00.15   Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
TCC Build 15   Windows XP Build 2600  Service Pack 3

I am logged in as Admin.

I've not started a new desktop, but my desktop list is
Code:
Default
Disconnect
Winlogon
My guess is that I have to log into my computer when I get to work and the two extra desktops are part of the whole corporate network thing.

My OS is XP SP3 32 bit and I'm logged in as non-admin.
 
On both my XP Pro and XP home SP3 32b systems, logged in on both as admin, I get the same 3 desktops: Default, Disconnect, Winlogon.

Note also that when I create a new desktop using Desktops from SysInternals, I get the following;

Code:
Sysinternals Desktop 1
Default
Disconnect
Winlogon

Just like the desktop command from TCC, there is no way to close a desktop once it has been created, other than logging off. (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc817881.aspx)
