Command Prompt (Windows)­­ - c­md.exe is the command line interpreter on  Windows NT-based operating systems (including latest Windows and Windows Server).

It is the analog of COMMAND.COM in MS-DOS and Windows 9x systems, or of the Unix shells (bash, ksh, zsh, ...) used on Unix-like systems.

Some Notes:

  • This articles are about the original cmd.exe/conhost.exe which comes with Windows and resides inside C:\Windows\System32.
  • On wine-systems only cmd.exe is as a compatible built-in available. If the is needed it automaticly starts DOSbox.
