    TCC 20.11.40 x64 Windows 7

    On the very first command TCC prints out
    TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the path specified.
    "C:\ProgramData\JP Software\Take Command 20\TCHistoryLog"

    There is indeed no such file, however here [title] there is a different path: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\JPSoft\TCHistoryLog.

    TCC in fact eventually finds the right history file and continues to work correctly, but why it prints out an unsuccessful attempt?

    Not reproducible here.

    The \programdata directory is the correct (new) location for the log files, unless you've passed a different name to LOG or in your TCMD.INI.

    As I mentioned I set it to a different path. And it actually works correctly. But TCC prints an error message anyway.

    Do you mean that setting it in GUI doesn't work? Only INI file works correctly, I mean without printing the error message?

    You didn't say how you are setting it -- in a LOG statement? In TCSTART? in the TCMD options dialog? Somewhere else?

    I am puzzled. In my very first message I quite clearly said where I set it. How is that equal to “I didn't say it”?

    All that aside.

    If you use something like *log /w /h C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\JPSoft\TCHistoryLog in your tcstart.btm file, do you see the error message?

    If the error message continues try the above without your tcmd.ini settings for this history file.

    These are just "shot in the dark" suggestions.

    Yep, that helped. Thanks for the workaround!
