When using batch files or console applications on Windows servers the window in question can allow text to be hightlighted (marked) for copying and pasting. Doing this pauses the batch/application and it will only resume after the copy operation.
Or this is what I thought to be true. Recently on a Windows 2003 R2 SP2 server I noted that whilst the scrolling was paused the operations were not. Does anyone know if
- my description in the 1st para is true for older windows
- is not true for Windows 2003 R2 SP2
- when it changed
- a full version comparison table for cmd.exe across different OS' ?
Thanks for reading
(Windows 2000 tag as that was the OS I used most before 2003 R2)
