Command Prompt Portable - parameters

I'm trying to figure something out with the new Command Prompt Portable.

I used to be able to pass parameters to cmd.exe, such as "/c backup346" to call a batch file (with /c to close the window at the end).

I've looked at CommandPromptPortable.nsi, and I don't think it supports parameters.

Can anyone confirm this?

Nope

it doesnt but you can put them into the batchfile at \CommandPromptPortable\Data\Batch.

Thank you

Yes but that only helps if I always want Command Prompt Portable to do the same thing, doesn't it?

Anyway, it's no biggie, just thought I'd ask.

Yes

the batch file is for "always".

How about something in the other files

SO does someone know if there is a way to make a dos game/program have a script run before the game starts, to open the CommandPromptPortable first?

Or is that gonna get added into the next gen of PAM so DOS programs open correctly, consistently?

Hello Group; Is there a list

Hello Group;

Is there a list of obtions some where that can be added to the batch file. John mentions that you can change things like color and columns. Where can I find a list of these and how to use them.

Batch Commands

Just search the web for details on batch files and DOS commands.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
