Glass CMD for XP
after the release of Glass CMD for Vista/7, some of my friends here asked me to make one for XP, so here it is

Author
Mohamed Kamal

Requirments
Needs at Least .Net Framework 3.5 : [link]

Updates :
not too much just updated the look and enabled the right click menu, adjusted scroll bar and the blur edges, increased the width, with some other improvements

ViGlance Note
if you use ViGlance, it is better that you add Glass CMD to the exclude list

It runs in my XP SP3 but only display that png border, not command console background transparent, it's black like regular windows cmd.exe
What usually cause that issue? (Maybe different .NET Frameworks version?)

Just so you know, there are virus software detecting this deviation as a threat (shown here:) [link]

Anyway, the virus software is flagging all images hosted on fc06.deviatart.net as being potential threats, and it is likely to be quite annoying for many folks. If you could possibly contact Norton and ask them to remove the warning and/or show them that this archive is not a threat, it would probably be helpful for a lot of people who use this website (or you could save yourself some trouble and remove it for download and alert Norton that it is no longer a valid link/concern for them). Either way, whether you decide to take action or not, I thought you might like to know about it so that is why I decided to contact you about it.

well, it is actually based on an old version of Border Skin, and the hook used in the old version was false detected by some AV, so no worry, but thanks for the warning :)

ohh.. i think i know this, it;s kind of old. and also, i remember it didn't work for me-Now it does :D vut still, it looks very Ugly lol Any mods for it?
komalo's avatar
well, when border skin is stable enough, i will use it's source code to recreate this from scratch ;)
blahstik's avatar

So we need to Re open it each time? is there a way to make it like The default one-like when we open command prompt it always opens this ? :D Nice skin BTW
komalo's avatar
thanks, unfortunately, yes, sorry :(
blahstik's avatar
awww it's ok any ways :D ill try to find a way to not need to reopen it( but think it'll inquire modifieing system files.

would you mind to explain a little?.. as i know beginning from NT6.x transparent CMD console is supported nativly by system but NT5.x doesnt support it.
using DOTNET3 or other bloated frameworks (by the way which arent included in system by default) make the usage of such sharp and powerful tool as CMD rather useless (just maybe as a toy or smth like that).
but there are some other more balanced (useful/pretty) implementations of console without need of DOTNET.

komalo's avatar
okay, i don't understand you, you mean creating a powerful CMD with .NET or other frameworks is better ?

sorry for the late in replying
alexsupra's avatar
i ment that .NET is too slow for such fast and sharp tools as CMD.
komalo's avatar
well, actually that's why i sometimes prefer to use scripting languages like AutoIt, but the problem is that in other software that create a more optional CMD, they need options of .NET Framework, but i always saw that the normal windows CMD is enough, it doesn't need tabs and other features

look for help on this idea, its so great. i hope u can find someone to help u. if i could help, i would helped before. but im still studing. i dont know the enought about programs and codes. i need more study.

but i hope what it will be finished and we will have the vista cmd on xp.
komalo's avatar
well i want to get back to it, but i am just focusing now on Border Skin, since it is the base code for the this, so when reaching a maximum stable state in Border Skin, i can develop this easily

ok. take ur time.
