The help says this (which raises a question, see below).
When starting Take Command or a Take Command Console(TCC) shell:
If there is an @d:\path\inifile option on the startup command line, Take Command will use the path and file name specified there.
Otherwise, the default TCMD.INI file name is used, and the search starts in the directory where the Take Command program file is stored. If the .INI file is not found, Take Command will look in the %LOCALAPPDATA% directory.
If no .INI file is found, all options are set to their default values. A new .INI file will be created, using the default location and name, as explained above.
Question: "Default location" ??? A default location is not mentioned. Considering that it looks **FIRST** in TCMD.EXE's directory, I'd consider that the default location. But, in fact, if no INI file is available, TCMD creates it in %LOCALAPPDATA.
It'd probably be a good idea if the help was more specific and mentioned %LOCALAPPDATA\JPSoft.
So, Jay, yes, it looks in first in the directory where the EXEs are. I have an ancient TCMD.INI in the appdata tree; it never gets used.
Another question: If the INI file were in, say, "C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD17x64" would TCC/TCMD, unelevated, be able to modify it if the default permissions were in place?
