    I've uploaded a test build of Take Command 10.0.66 to the ftp beta area (ftp://jpsoft.com/beta/tcmd.exe).

    This build has a (hopefully final) fix for the Windows API bug that causes (usually rarely) a Ctrl-Break or (even more rarely) a Ctrl-C to terminate TCMD. If you've experienced problems with Ctrl-Break or Ctrl-C terminating TCMD, please try this build and let me know if you still have any problems.

    I've run this build overnight (8+ hours) on three computers with weights holding down the Ctrl and Break keys and haven't been able to make it terminate.

    Although I never had this problem, I had hoped that the new version
    might also help with mine (Ctrl-C being blocked from an attached SFU
    tcsh shell tab). It doesn't. :-)

    TCC 10.00.66 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    TCC Build 66 Windows XP Build 2600 Service Pack 3
    TCMD v10.00.66

    (Running 9.02.154, I could not duplicate any of the below problems.)

    .) I have not had any failures while manually pressing Ctrl-C. I'm
    only a hundred or so in, however.

    .) I also noticed that the Ctrl-C is not being passed through to an
    application that does getch().

    .) Running stand alone (not in TCMD), and typing EXIT, I get a fault
    that does not generate a .GPF file:
    ---------------------------
    tcc.exe - Application Error
    ---------------------------
    The instruction at "0x02d43d5e" referenced memory at "0x02d43d5e". The
    memory could not be "written".


    Click on OK to terminate the program
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------


    .) Running inside TCMD, the following command terminates TCMD and
    orphans the two TCC windows. Running this same command in TCC
    stand-alone does not cause trouble.
    for /l %h in (1,1,100) do (echo %h %+ keystack Ctrl-c)

    ---------------------------
    tcmd.exe - Application Error
    ---------------------------
    The instruction at "0x0213c042" referenced memory at "0x0213c042". The
    memory could not be "written".


    Click on OK to terminate the program
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------

    FWIW, I didn't have any problems before with Ctrl-C or Ctrl-Break, and none with this build either.

    What is funny though, with build 64, a Ctrl-C only took effect on the key up event, not on the key down. With build 66, this seems to have changed.

    Yes -- it was a test build for Windows 7. (I posted an announcement
    about it here a few days ago.)

    It is apparently working fine. "Apparently" in the sense that I
    haven't been able to make it crash in the use cases where it often did
    before.
