NTCMDPROMPT


Description | Syntax | Parameters | Switches | Related | Notes | Examples | Errorlevels | Availability

Runs the command interpreter Cmd.exe, rather than Command.com, after running a TSR or after starting the command prompt from within an MS-DOS application.


Syntax

NTCMDPROMPT [/?]


Parameters

none.


Switches
/? NT2003
Display command help.

Related

none.


Notes

When Command.com is running, some features of Cmd.exe, such as the DOSKEY display of command history, are not available. If you would prefer to run the Cmd.exe command interpreter after you have started a TSR or started the command prompt from within an application based on MS-DOS, you can use NTCMDPROMPT. However, keep in mind that the TSR may not be available for use when you are running CMD. You can include NTCMDPROMPT in your Config.nt file or the equivalent custom startup file in an application's program information file (PIF).
