How can I replace the default program providing console windows under Windows XP?
I know of alternative programs, and I have a shortcut to start
cmd.exe in Console2. But now I want console applications to start in Console2 rather than the default console program, even when I have no control over the program that starts the console application. (I.e. a non-console program starts
consoleapp.exe, and I can't change it to start Console2 instead, but I still want the application to be started inside a new instance of Console2.)
(Note that I want to replace the console itself, that is, the window in which console (i.e. text mode) applications run. And I must be able to run arbitrary, unmodified console applications: a substitute for a specific console program such as Cmd won't do me any good.)
OT: I want to know when Microsoft is going to make a decent CSRSS replacement. Not being able to adjust the width of a "terminal" by resizing the window is a complete joke.
Go download the ISE already. (It's included in Win7/2008R2.)
But as far as I understand this ISE is an environment for Powershell, not a general console emulator.
