HowTo / Notes

NOTE: Windows cmd.exe vs. wine cmd.exe

In wine exist also an application called cmd.exe which is able to run some commands and windows applications from a command prompt. The reported bugs, which are linked here, are related to this internal commandline interpreter.

The description here instead is about the original cmd.exe from a Windows installation.
Please hold this in mind!
