Open command prompt embedded

It would be nice if we could open a command prompt (local) embedded as a tab in RDM.

This is already possible.

Create a Command Line session (this type of session is in the Other section when you create a new entry).

In the General tab, enter the following: "C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe"

In the Host and Credentials tab, enter your local computer name in the host field.

This will open you a command prompt in embedded mode for your local computer.

What determines if a Windows application will or won't open in the embedded/tabbed area within RDM?

Hello Sue,

You can configure your session to open in embedded or external mode by selecting the appropriate method in the display setting of the session

Thanks for the reply. I've set the Display option to Embedded, but some apps still open in external windows. You know about Teamviewer, but it also happens with a wonderful old SSH client that I use in Windows, SSH Explorer. So my question was trying to get an the underlying technical reason, to see if I could somehow hack a solution.

BTW, I see that Teamviewer just released an API. Any hope that TV sessions could be embedded? Also any hope of automating the second login into Windows after getting past the first TV login?

Thanks, Sue
