    I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question, but I am blocked and unable to proceed any further until I know what I am doing wrong. I have the 64-bit safechars plugin in the plugin directory:
    [C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD17x64\Plugins]dir /a-d
    Volume in drive C is Everything Serial number is 420a:1d5b
    Directory of C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD17x64\Plugins\*
    9/27/2010 18:42 9,259 4console.txt
    3/26/2012 18:55 84,992 4console64.dll
    7/22/2014 15:35 44,032 EVENT64.dll
    10/31/2014 11:52 41,984 safechars-x64.dll
    10/31/2014 11:56 33,648 SafeChars.chm
    213,915 bytes in 5 files and 0 dirs 225,280 bytes allocated
    651,259,097,088 bytes free​
    As can be seen from above; I am using a 64-bit version of Take Command/TCC as can be seen below:
    TCC 17.00.57 x64 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]​
    Yet I get the following error messages:
    TCC: (Sys) Z:\BuildUniqueSongList.btm [3] Incorrect function.
    Formatting Fields...
    TCC: Z:\BuildUniqueSongList.btm [114] Unknown command "SafeEcho"
    TCC: Z:\BuildUniqueSongList.btm [114] Unknown command "SafeEcho"
    Sorting output...
    C:\Users\DanTheMan\AppData\Local\Temp\SortedSongList.txtThe process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
    Eliminating duplicates...
    TCC: (Sys) Z:\BuildUniqueSongList.btm [39] Incorrect function.
    Again I apologize in advance but I am no longer able to figure what I am doing wrong myself.

    At the beginning of my .BTM files, I always check to make sure that the plugin is indeed loaded, before I call any of the commands/functions/variables that are contained within that plugin. For example;
    if plugin safechars echo Plugin Is Loaded
    if not Plugin safechars Plugin Is Not Loaded
    This may not solve your problem, but it is a first step.

    As Joe suggests, it looks as if the plugin is not getting loaded. PLUGIN /I is another way to check.
