WinOne for $US4.95 (regular $US15.00 )
« on: May 21, 2012, 03:28:27 PM »
Hi
For a short time only, you can purchase WinOne for only $US4.95. That's a massive saving of $US15.00 off the normal WinOne purchase price!

WinOne® is a Command Language Interpreter (CLI), similar in concept to the shells cmd.exe and command.com, except that WinOne® has been designed to enable you to get the most out of your Windows operating System.
WinOne® attempts to make Windows easier to use and to make you more productive when there is a need to work at the command line level or when there is a need to write a batch program. WinOne® provides a rich set of commands and batch commands, including additional convenience functions accessed via the System Menu. Essentially, WinOne® provides a very powerful working environment, without sacrificing the flexibility and control you get from working at the command line level.

Does anyone have experience with this?  I'm actually not too interested in an extended batch language - as bad as cmd.exe is it has the advantage of being on every single Windows machine I come across.

However, the debugger in WinOne, http://www.winone.com.au/debugging.html, looks very interesting if it can debug regular cmd.exe scripts. I don't care if the script/batch file is running under WinOne instead of cmd.exe when debugging, as long as WinOne is compatible enough that I can expect mostly the same behavior.

A decent cmd.exe debugger for $5 would be well worthwhile.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure I'll have the opportunity to try this out over the next couple of weeks, except for maybe a few minutes tonight. If anyone has used WinOne (and especially the debugger), I'd appreciate a post with some thoughts on the experience.

It might be worth a $5 gamble, even if I only get to install and verify that it doesn't just fall over right off the bat.  Then again, even if I miss the $5 special, if the debugger would actually work for what I'd like to do, $15 is probably still worth it.

WinOne (regular $US 20)

The thread's original title's "WinOne ... (regular $US15.00 )" is a wrong price.
The listed normal price is $20, making the quoted saving correct.

However, either the homepage or the program has not been updated for some time:

Yes, the features list seems to include a lot of built-in stuff.  And a lot of features harken back to Windows 3.1/NT 3.5... weren't those the last editions of Program Manager?

Smart insertion of program files into Program Manager groups, by using the GROUP command.
Easy access to the configuration files, AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS and all .INI files. Use the System Edit... option in the system menu.
Fast access to Program Manager or Explorer programs. Use the Programs option in the system menu to run these programs.
WinOne® can be set as the default start up shell, replacing the Program Manager.



You could always try this batch file debugger free for 30 days... but it's a whopping $80 to buy.  Let me know what it's like if you do...

But even better, watch this cool video about batch file debugging with Take Command (which also has a 30 day trial, but a $100 purchase price).
