Command Prompt for Windows




New Features in Version 7.1

  • The WinOne® Command Prompt now uses the new Windows XP look when the WinOne® Command Prompt is running on Windows XP and the XP Themes/Styles have been enabled.

  • The correct Open/Save File dialogs are now used in Windows 2000 onwards.

  • Support has been added for the Mouse Wheel on operating systems that include native support for the Mouse Wheel. This includes Windows 98 onwards and Windows NT 4.0 onwards. Earlier versions of Windows did not have built-in support for the Mouse Wheel.

  • Added a small 16x16 icon for operating systems that require a small icon.

  • When a command was having its output automatically paged, the -- more -- displayed would flash as the mouse was being moved in the main WinOne® Command Prompt window. This has been corrected and the -- more -- displayed no longer flashes.

  • Fixed the incorrect values returned by DISKFREE and DISKUSED for disk drives larger the 2gig.

  • The WinOne® Command Prompt window is now tiled when more then one instance of the WinOne® Command Prompt is started.

  • The Status Bar window is also tiled when more then one instance of the WinOne® Command Prompt is running.

  • The instance number is now displayed in the title bar of the main WinOne® Command Prompt window. For example, "WinOne® Pro:3 [80x25]".

  • Added a Size Box to the bottom right side of the Drive Bar. The Size Box is only displayed when the Drive Bar is displayed.

  • The scrollbar on the main WinOne® Command Prompt window is disabled (greyed out) until there is some lines of text in the scrollback buffer.

  • Button images displayed in a listbox are not longer stretched when displayed. Instead the listbox is resized to fit the Button images.

  • Finished the Dlgedit Help File and increased the version number to 1.3.

  • A new uninstall program has been included in the WinOne® Command Prompt package. The WinOne® Command Prompt can be uninstalled from the Add/Remove Programs icon in the Control Panel. Alternatively, running UNINST.EXE from the WinOne® Command Prompt installation directory will also uninstall the WinOne® Command Prompt.

  • Better Explorer integration via Explorers Context Menus. When right clicking on a drive/directory/folder, the menu that pops up will include a menu option to Browse with WinOne. When right clicking on a file, the menu that pops up will include a menu option to Open WinOne. When right clicking on a .CMD or .BAT file, the menu that pops up will include a menu option to Run with WinOne.

  • Batch files can now have a .WBT file extension (ie. Windows Batch File). When a .WBT batch file is run from Explorer by double clicking on its icon, the batch file is automatically run via the WinOne® Command Prompt.

  • .EXC External Commands are now associated with the WinOne® Command Prompt and will launch and display the main WinOne® Command Prompt window when run from the Program Manager/Explorer.

  • When command CALL is used from the command line it now correctly launches all batch files (eg. .WBT, .CMD and .BAT) in DOS and not the WinOne® Command Prompt.

  • The WinOne® Command Prompt and all External Commands have all been recompiled with Pentium Optimisations enabled. Previously, the WinOne® Command Prompt had been compiled with 80x386 Optimisations enabled.
