    XXCOPY TECHNICAL BULLETIN #043

    From:    Kan Yabumoto           tech@xxcopy.com
    To:      XXCOPY user
    Subject: XXConsole --- A Super Console Generator for Windows Vista
    Date:    2007-09-01
    ===============================================================================
    
    Introduction:
    
        As a bonus feature of the new Vista-compatible XXCOPY, when the
        application is installed, a shortcut icon will be created on the
        Desktop which will open up a console window (CMD.EXE) with the
        Administrator privilege.  Under a UAC-enabled Vista environment,
        the command console with the elevated privilege is probably the
        best way to run XXCOPY and batch files alike.
    
        Rather than adding the one-time-only function into the XXCOPY
        program, we chose to segregate the shortcut-creation function into
        a stand-alone utility program in order to keep XXCOPY's size small.
        Although it is a humble one-trick pony, we decided to publish
        the tool as freeware for personal use.  It is called XXConsole.
    
    
     xconicon     xconsexe
    
        It provides a single-page dialog which combines the four-page
        Property sheet of the CMD.EXE shortcut.  Indeed, all of the
        functionality provided by XXConsole are available from the CMD.EXE
        property sheet except for the several embedded icon images.
    
          -------------------------------------------------------------
           It is almost embarrassing to call it a new utility program.
           However, we thought there may be someone who might find it
           useful.  So, we decided to make it look half way decent and
           added the install/uninstall feature as well.
          -------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Command Line Invocation Syntax:
    
        This utility can be invoked from a command line (also suitable
        for a batch file invocation).
    
        xxconsole.exe  [ switches...]
    
          where switches may be zero or more of the following:
    
             /fs:<n>        font size                     (4 - 72)
             /ra:0          disables run as administrator
             /ra:1          enables  run as administrator (for Vista)            
             /sw:<n>        screen buffer width           (1 - 1024)
             /sh:<n>        screen buffer height          (1 - 9999)
             /ww:<n>        console window width          (1 - 1024)
             /wh:<n>        console window height         (1 - 128)
             /tr:<n>        text color value red          (0 - 255)
             /tg:<n>        text color value green        (0 - 255)
             /tb:<n>        text color value blue         (0 - 255)
             /br:<n>        bgnd color value red          (0 - 255)
             /bg:<n>        bgnd color value green        (0 - 255)
             /bb:<n>        bgnd color value blue         (0 - 255)
             /start         starts immediate action
             /uninstall     uninstalls this program
             /?             displays the command syntax (this message)
    
    
             Unspecified values are set to respective default values.
    
        Tip: You may add any of the above switches as the command arguments
             for a XXConsole.EXE shortcut (without the /start switch) to
             override the built-in default values to suit your taste.
    
    
    Changing the Settings after Icon is created:
    
        The XXConsole application helps you create a shortcut icon for
        the console for the first time.  After the shortcut is created,
        any subsequent change in its parameters must be made through the
        property sheet (by right-click of a mouse on the shortcut).
    
        Similarly, other parameters that are not specified by the
        XXConsole application should be made from the property sheet.
