Bad News: The cmd shell has no network support, and here my current knowledge is, that installing network, will be a long way ...
Everything is done and works!
It has been a hard task: Changes in
- !Fundamentals script
- BuildModel script
- Copy&Expand script
- (and of course) cmd.script
One sample: Because there is no explorer, it does not make much sence to generate explorer shortcuts. Therefore the "add_shortcut" requests coming from buildModel, are neglected, besides one exception: Shortcuts to start menu are processed and converted to an entry in a batch file, and therefore in the PE boot they are executed. See the screen shoot below, where PENetwork is started w/o any PENetwork script changes.Results: Two different "100 % explorer free" cmd shell PEs:
- The AiZ version: Like the old PicoXP, ISO can be sized down to 16 MB. Supports start of cmd line applications
- The Rui Paz version: Supports start of GUI apps.
When you download the latest PEF.ZIP
, there are two predefined configurations "Pico" and "CmdNet" for these two versions.
