When I start vim from inside conEmu, then backspace is not working properly. I know its not a conEmu issue. It's a vim problem with console. I tried all things like

stty erase ^H, stty erase '^?', set bs=2 etc.,

I have also tried the advice at Backspace key not working in vim

but none of this worked!

Any advice for solving this.

Which OS? Does it work if you use something else than conEmu? What does control-h do if you try it? – Hennes Feb 23 '13 at 15:48
Microsoft Windows7. If I press Ctrl+H then it delete a character. And I am getting the same issue from inside cmd.exe. But I use conEmu that why I have specifically mentioned it. – dearvivekkumar Feb 23 '13 at 16:12
I suppose, this may be a bug in ConEmu ANSI sequences processor. – Maximus Feb 23 '13 at 22:17
comEmu is perfect It is not having this bug. As this problem happens in cmd.exe also. – dearvivekkumar Feb 24 '13 at 9:09
