'fs.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.



That's because fs.exe is not on the path and running as admin changes the folder to %windir%\system32

No, it still says it doesn't exist. Did you change the case of fs.zip at all?

In the mirror link you need do clic on fs.zip and now in the button like in this picture:


Thanks, I have a popup on the bottom right corner and didn't see the extra two buttons. Oops. Mea Culpa!

I got it, and it works in Windows 8.1 32 bit - the task bar is visible as expected and an ontop window is still on top - see image

Thanks Dos_Probie for the feedback, also foxidrive. In your opinion the windows always on top like your performance window, should keep always on top, or in background for the cmd using fs.

In the fullscreen mode on windows xp the text font is raster font 8x8. You thing is good idea add the code for change the font to raster font 8x8 this should be a default option or optional?

It works well Carlos.

The windows should probably remain on top as that is the way they are meant to be.
However if there could be a switch to make the FS window stay on top of everything, then maybe that could be useful sometimes too.

Mode con can't do what fs.exe does.

Hi Carlos,

I have tested the version 0.5. on my windows 7 32bit. This version work better than previus version.

There is a problem with the dimension. The vertical dimension visualized is no the maximum. Can you expand?

I have execute the test.cmd with two condition.

Image 1: Execute test.cmd with taskbar with autohide on.

Image 2: Execute test.cmd with taskbar with autohide off.

@einstein1969: That was my fix for that problem. I found the problem in a netbook with Windows 7, then was very uncomfortable write the code inside it and test. Like your screenshot is how I get problem solved.
I not know if the problem is because a some minor bug in a dll of Windows 7 patched in some update. In that case, the problem will not appear in all Windows 7. Then, I not know if the problem is solvable updating a dll or changing the code.
But currently, the version 0.5 is the most stable that looks good in all Windows 7.

I will try improve.
