This opens a command prompt. It opens the command prompt in theDev directory and runs a batch file which contains the following.
The shortcut command line is.
cmd.exe /k cmdprompt.bat
This is on Windows NT hence, cmd.exe. Windows 9x would use command.com.What all this results in is a command prompt with proper path and environment settings.The path cannot be set at the operating system level because of the existence ofboth the Dev and Rel directories. The release system has the same program names asthe beta development system so having both in the path is non functional.
