Same windows shell as cmd.exe?

    The idea of this tool really intriques me, however, I'm curious about one thing. Does Console use the standard built in Windows shell? The same one that the Windows command prompt does?

    I sometimes use batch files here at work and need to make sure that the command structure is identical if I move this to another machine (where Console is not installed).

      As I understand it, the default is not necessarily identical. However, you can choose any shell you want on the Edit>Settings>Tabs menu, for instance put "cmd.exe" for Shell:

      Cool. Thanks for the reply Nicholas. That would be just fine for me. :)

      I'm gonna check it out this weekend.

      Console can be configured to use other shells, but the default is always to use cmd.exe.
