Pretty regularly I can get that problem too when opening a command line
window, and first thing I would do is using rexxtry and immediately
issuing a say statement (typing while rexxtry.rex starts up). Here's an
example that works *quite reliably* for me:

    Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

    D:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Administrator>rexxtry say hallo
    HALLO
      ........................................... rexxtry.rex on WindowsNT

    D:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Administrator>rexxtry
    REXX-ooRexx_4.0.0(MT) 6.03 24 Apr 2009
      rexxtry.rex lets you interactively try REXX statements.
        Each string is executed when you hit Enter.
        Enter 'call tell' for a description of the features.
      Go on - try a few...            Enter 'exit' to end.
    say sa
    Der Befehl "RAY" ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder
    konnte nicht gefunden werden.
      rc = 1 .................................... rexxtry.rex on WindowsNT
      


Here is what maybe work for you:

   1. First copy the following lines into the clipboard (note there is a
      trailing blank line):

      rexxtry say hallo
      rexxtry
      say sa

      exit

   2. Make sure no Rexx program runs, and no command line window is open
      in which a Rexx program ran (not sure whether that is really
      necessary, but who knows)
   3. Open a new command line window
   4. Just paste the above lines into the window; if necessary repeat
      steps 2 through 4

Eventually (within ten attempts) the error comes up again (although I
might have waited in between invocations, after having all command line
windows closed).


Here is another run, where this error occurs for the "exit" statement!

      rexxtry.rex:  Enter 'exit' to end.       Or '?' for online REXX help.
    exit
    Der Befehl "RXIT" ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder
    konnte nicht gefunden werden.
