Hi Peter,

It was "Raku".

And I did check the result of what was suppose to have
happened and it did not.

I had a little tiny panic attack as I had spend endless
hours on that program just to have it not interface
with Cobian.

After correcting my "usr lib", all the text that
was suppose to show (as showed in a shell) did
show up i the Raku black box.

Trivia:  this is how Cobian calls my program:

COMMANDLINE,"C:\rakudo\bin\raku.exe C:\NtUtil\CobianWrapper.pl6 
--rotates 20 --backup_path [BACKUP]\MyDocsBackup\backup1",true
