It turns out I'd messed up slashes when passing paths to function 0x4300 to see if %TEMP% exists as a directory. C:\ and C:\FOO are OK, but C: and C:\FOO\ are not. Since I always had writable C: with enough space and on Windows smlrcc does not invoke tmpfile(), I never saw the problem. It's also possible that Windows and/or DOSBox was too forgiving when I looked at this some time ago and saw no obvious problem.

Try the updated binaries and libraries.
