Version 19.00.23 Crashes

Dec 2, 2008
After Build 23, TCMD crashes after about 5 minutes of running, even if TCMD is minimized.

I have background TCC Windows running they have never been a problem before.

I may have to back out and go back to Build 22.

Which error logs are you referring to, the Windows Event log?

I have crash dumps produced using SysInternals' ProcDump.

One produced using "C:\Program Files\SysInternals\procdump" -o -n 1 -e -64 -mp 9528 TCMD.dmp" (Large) and the other "C:\Program Files\SysInternals\procdump" -o -n 1 -e -64 3280 TCMD.dmp" (Smaller)

I think Rex is referring to the TCMD and TCC exception log files in the install folder. Usually (for x64):

C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD19_x64\tcc.exception.log
C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD19_x64\tcmd.exception.log

I had the same crash issue with 23 right after setting up and starting to run it on Win7x86. The log files were empty also. I did capture this from Windows:

Both files are empty, that why I asked, I was hoping there were other files with something in them, I sent a mini-dump to

If the log files are empty, then the crash wasn't in TCMD (or TCC) code. It either happened in a Windows DLL that had its own exception handler, or a third-party app that injected itself into TCMD (or TCC).

Tried backing out to 19.00.22, it works fine, 19.00.23 does not work. I also loaded the debugger after the crash to see what the Call Stack showed:

How would you suggest debugging this occurrence if this happens to someone not in the know, please?

And if 19.00.22 works and 19.00.23 doesn't work, what changed? My system didn't change, sure the error may be coming from a Windows DLL or injected code (why doesn't it inject itself into 19.00.22 and cause a crash) but the only thing that could of changed is how they were called from TCMD.

I followed TCMD with Process Monitor and got:


The previous 11 events were "Thread Exit" events
The "Thread Exit" events info is as follows:

The "IRP_MJ_DIRECTORY_CONTROL" events info is as follows:

And finally "IRP_MJ_QUERY_INFORMATION" events info is as follows:

The process tab is attach, it is a CSV (excel)

TCMD seems to crash when something change on the network drive.
