PromptPal Version 2 Now Available!
05 April 2013 02:32 PM

PromptPal Version 2.0

PromptPal - our popular command line replacement for administrators and power users - has finally been given a major update. There are many changes in v2, but here are the highlights:

    Totally rewritten internally to put you closer to the underlying command shell. Commands that formerly required special treatment in PromptPal v1 just work normally in v2, e.g. More, Telnet, NSLOOKUP etc.
    Support for Windows PowerShell and other shells of your choosing.
    Integrated support for "Run as different user", which can even be combined with "Run as Administrator"
    Optional initial command for all new tabs
    Toolbar control over command completion options (simple on/off toggles)
    Command history is separate after tab creation.
    Pass-thru for CTRL+D and any other key combos not mapped to a menu item.
    Windows 8 compatibility improved

If you make a lot of use of the command line or find it a daunting but necessary evil, then give the new version a try. You'll be surprised how much time and effort it will save you!

Existing PromptPal customers who bought on or after 1st June 2012 have already been sent out free upgrade licenses for version 2. Those who bought version 1 prior to that date can upgrade at a 50% discount. Emails about this will be sent out on Monday 8th April 2013, but if you'd like upgrade earlier or have any questions, please either submit a ticket or email us here: mailto: [email protected]

With PromptPal, you'll still be using the dependable command processors that power Windows, but you'll also be able to take advantage of a tabbed interface, command syntax help, autocomplete, Windows-style editing, and the ability to search the console like any regular text document.

You can even launch the Windows PowerShell, standard command prompts, and other command shells, all within PromptPal. It's all of the command prompt action you'll ever need, all at your fingertips.

Imagine being able to copy and paste, or drag and drop, files between folders while still enjoying command line prompt power! Imagine, still, having all of your command history available to you, always, even if you close a console session.

And with tight integration with Windows Explorer, you'll be able to start experiencing the benefits of PromptPal immediately after installation!
