how to access vs.nt command prompt?

Rog
Yes, I am guessing that typing cmd in the run
windows will bring up the command prompt, but not the
vs.net command prompt. Is there a switch(s) for accessing
the vs.net command prompt? Or do you get to it from the
VS.net IDE?

Thanks,
Rog

Or you can run "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
2003\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat" after cmd.exe..

My solution....
1) first edit vcvars32.bat to add the line:
@if not "%1" == "" cd %1
just before the
@goto end

2) Run the following RegEdit Script (I've attached it, but one's
newsreader may balk at that)
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\VSDosHere]
@="Visual Studio .NET 2003 Command Prompt"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\VSDosHere\comman d]
@="C:\\WINNT\\system32\\cmd.exe /k \"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft
Visual Studio .NET 2003\\Common7\\Tools\\vsvars32.bat\" %1"

3) Thereafter, just right click on a folder in Windows Explorer, and
choose "Visual Studio .NET 2003 Command Prompt". It will open a dos window
in the folder, and run vcvars32.
