Obtaining Vista CMD Commands Answered

In Vista command prompt, there are loads of commands that weren't there in XP, some of which are needed for a utility program I am writing. I run XP, and therefore am in search of a 'pack' of these added commands that I could download. Know of one?

you can download them, i havent done it myself, but hey, worth a try.

i also was playing around in system32 folder and thought you could copy the command from there. and move to your XP computer it you had access to a vista Computer with Admin abilities...but i didnt have any luck with that approach,

I've tried that, doesn't work. At least for choice.

No, I didn't put them into System32. But I did put them into a folder onto my desktop, then added the folder's path to the %path% environmental variable.

%path% only holds it for one session. You need to manually add it using System Properties.

I didn't see where to download it from there, but I did find all the [ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Services/TechNet/samples/PS/Win98/Reskit/ win 98 reskit tools]. [ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Services/TechNet/samples/PS/Win98/Reskit/SCRPTING/CHOICE.EXE Here] is it itself.
