I've only today noticed it... Made a mistake when tipping boxes in GUI, and TCC yelled at me
tcc.exe /K
Error at line 34 in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\JPSoft\TCMD.INI:
...but one minute! %LocalAppData% is a discardable place for temporary and hardware-dependent user-specific files, which is never included in backups or migration profiles.
Definitely not the place for a main application configuration file!

Microsoft never recommended to save persistent settings in a discardable place. They aren't that stupid.
%AppData% is the place for persistent configuration files. %LocalAppData% is for discardable and hardware-dependent configuration.
And for your "least 12 years", I haven't used TCC for these years.

Also, what's wrong with the setting "TCStartPath=%USERPROFILE%\bin" ?
