For CT version 10 use *trunc_bin.exe* rather than trunc_bi.exe.  You can
find it in the *ct_tools.zip* file which you can download from the CT 10
Support files page <http://www.k1ea.com/ct10/index.htm>.

Also I was playing with ARRL DX CW and don't seem to be able to get CT to

Type NOWORKDUPE [Enter] if you don't want to work dupes.  Press [Shift-F9]
to program the QSO B4 message that will be sent to dupes when you press

According to Release10.txt <http://www.k1ea.com/download/release10.txt>:

10.00.004 - 30 Jan 2004

* New command line switch for K5KA (-KA)
  When this switch is turned on the F4 will not send your call if the call
  the callsign field is a dupe. Instead a dupe message comes up.

So you have to do

CT -KA filename

CTWin -KA filename

to enable this feature it seems.
