If you have your PATH statement set correctly, you don't need a command like 
..\tr - just  tr will do.  And, it will work from any directory in your 
computer.  Did you reboot your machine after editing autoexec.bat file?  
Changes will not be in effect until you do.

TR normally installs in the c:\log directory (and you say in your message 
that's where it's actually installed).  If this is correct, you need c:\log 
in your PATH statement, not c:\trlog.

If it helps, here's a brief tutorial on the PATH statement:  When you attempt 
to run an executable file, like tr.exe, at the DOS prompt, the PC first looks 
for the file in the current directory.  If it can't find it there, it looks 
for the file in each of the directories specified in the PATH statement and 
will run it if found in one of those directories.  Hence, the path statement 
is a neat way to run something like TR from any directory without having to 
install separate copies of tr in each and every directory you want to use.   
That's all there is to it.
