Fixed View command broken in version 21.0 build 22

Aug 19, 2009
It seems that the view command is somehow broken in version 21.0 build 22 as it cannot be launched from tcc anymore. If you type view filename.txt nothing happens at all. If you launch it from tc, it still works as expected.

After having installed build 22 and downgrading to build 16, view is still broken when launched from tcc. So to me it seems that build 22 makes changes to my system, that isn't recovered when uninstalling build 22.

This bug is consistent and can be reproduced (tried it multiple times, in a virtual environment).

Hoping for a fix soon.
Best regards

I am seeing the same problem. The View command does not work in a stand alone TCC instance. Works in a TCMD tab.

V.exe works in both a tab console and stand alone TCC.

I didn't go back to any earlier V21 builds.

Currently running: TCC 21.00.22 x64 Windows 10 [Version 10.0.14393]

I can use the `view` command successfully from tcc launched from tcc, but not from the tcc launched from the windows gui.
Is tcc different to tcmd installs.

Rex, With build 23 "View" is now working in both a TCMD tab and a stand alone TCC console.
