Command Prompt Portable 2.3 has been released. It's a simple utility that allows you to add a link to a customizable command prompt to the menu in the PortableApps.com Platform or on its own. You can change the colors, prompt, columns, window title and more by editing a simple batch file. This release improves Unicode path support and has an updated installer. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. And it's open source and completely free.
Command Prompt Portable is a simple utility that allows you to have a custom command line setup on any Windows computer you come across. It has built in support for the command line interpreters on Windows Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8 as well as the ability to customize using simple DOS commands by editing the .bat file within CommandPromptPortable\Data\batch after you've run it once. You can customize the prompt, colors, window title, columns and more. A basic batch file is included with some simple settings.
You can also pass in paths you'd like the command prompt to start in by starting CommandPromptPortable.exe with a command line parameter of the path. Advanced users can enable auto-complete by following the directions within the Other\Source\readme.txt file.
Helpful Tip: Launch a command prompt with your own portable command line tools in the path by adding SET PATH=%~d0\UtilsDirectory;%PATH% to the batch file and placing your tools in X:\UtilsDirectory
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
Command Prompt Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in.
