After I used the built-in update mechanism, I was able to start tcmd with no
troubles. Then I made a desktop shortcut to tcc.exe and check Run As
Administrator in the Shortcut (tab) / Advanced and also in Compatibility
(tab).

I was able to launch from the tcc shortcut, and after okaying the operation,
it launched standalone tcc.exe with %_admin == 1.

However, now I can't start the standard tcmd.exe without the message "The
requested operation requires elevation."

tcmd.exe comes up with one tab, and I can start new tcc.exe tabs inside
without trouble. What requires elevation, why did it change from the
standard install, and what can I do to get a standard tcmd.exe running?

Windows-R (run dialog) does the same thing.
