     First things first, this is just something simple, you need to rename cmd.exe.000 to cmd.exe that is the same as any cmd or command file you will get off of a computer. Next you need to make sure that you register the redirect.dll or this will not work, I repeat this will not work. This is a proof of concept that you can use a vb app to talk to a dos window and not only that but read what is sent back in the vb app. If you would like to replace the cmd.exe with your own command file that is fine but please make the appropriate changes in the app to show where that cmd.exe or command.exe is located on your computer. You can see the source to that dll in the dll.source folder, although that is written in c++ by (unknown) but whoever they are, they did a great job..

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
