Sounds to me like you're really looking for suggestions about cmd.exe 
specifics and related Windows mechanisms.  I'm not sure this list is the
best one to direct such questions to, though perhaps someone here has an
idea how to do what you want.  If not, you might want to send the 
specifics of your question to a more Windows-oriented list or group.
I'm sure there's some CMD.EXE evangelist list out there somewhere! ;-)
