Title: Native shell
Post by: Vortex on January 06, 2013, 10:06:53 am
Native shell is a program for experiments with a Native API mode of Windows. Native mode is a mode, where chkdsk starts at the boot time before login screen appears. It is used by chkdsk utility to check and correct errors in the system partition. The Native mode itself is a blue screen (it is blue in Windows XP, another color in other versions of Windows), which appears before the Windows login screen.

The program is written in C. WinDDK and NTNDK header files required. The sources are based on NCLI (Native Command Line Interface) from the TinyKRNL Project. A code from ZenWINX library partially used. The archive contains native.exe executable and a source code.

Interesting, would never have known an application like this exists.

Thanks for pointing it out Vortex.

Didn't know that our ZenWinx library was used by more than the native toolkit.

Will have to mention that in the documentation.
