    The First step is to Download the Beta Console Tools -> http://www.diamondcs.com.au/downloads/consoletools.zip

    Then Extract the tools you wish to use to System32 (The Default would be C:\WINDOWS\system32)

    Then go to Start -> Run -> and Type "cmd" (no quotes)

    For this example I'm using strdump

    Excellent info dog!

    When we release our new website we've already added some info about how to use console applications, as well as how to use them via scripts/other programs so more information will be inbound soon, but until then your guide is an excellent introduction to those new or unsure about console apps :)
    Afterall, they're very easy to use! You just need to know how to get started :)

    These 21 tools are just the start of our console tool library - it will continue to evolve and expand with time, and all console tools will remain free both all uses - personal, educational and commercial. :)

    Thanks for the comment and tools Wayne :)

    Good to know the new site will have documentation for how to use console applications, that'll make it easy for everyone to utilize and appreciate these handy gems. They all work flawlessly. :) My favourite still is sendmail :ninja:

    :) The new site is very user-oriented - much more user-friendly, easier to use, easier to navigate and easier to find things, and contains more help-related items such as How-To guides for things like console tools.

    We haven't included sendmail.exe in this package as it needs some refinement but many people have got a lot of good usage out of it over the years so it's certainly something I'm looking to bring back - like I said the console tool library will continue to expand. :)

    Cheers,
    Wayne

    When I downloaded the console tools from the link provided by dog above, and ran the file through Jottis online scan, AntiVir did pick up Heuristic/trojan.downloader(possible variant). I know its a false positive, just wanted to point it out.


    Wayne....I hope the new site will allow mail registration of all DCS software!

    I've noticed AntiVir does have some detections which are very broad, it can work very very well. Just look at the generic webdownloader detection in TDS-3, it detected loads of new malware before any sigs :)

    Is the new site up yet? I looked all over the existing site and couldn't find any How-To guides for the console tools. Am I looking in the wrong place?
