    CmdHerePowertoySetup.exe does not support win2k3.

    sorry for not putting things clear.

    in windows explore, right click on a folder, there will appear a contect
    menu item "open command box here". after clicking it, you'll get a
    command console in which the working folder is the folder you
    right-click in the explore. this is an enhanced feature in windows xp
    after powertoy is installed. very convenient if you need to interact
    with the command line very often.

  7. It's only an inf file that the EXE creates, the inf file is named
    DOSHERE.INF.. I've pasted the contents below this paragraph. RT-Clicking it
    and choosing install has given me a command prompt here on my 2003 servers.
