TCC_LE was the replacement from the well known 4NT console.

It makes using the Windows console a similar pleasure than using the Linux console.

Allthough these commands are DOS like enhanced and have little in common with the Linux's Bash shell. Or alternatives.

If you don't know about 4NT just mention it to an old PC user and listen to what he would say about it.

Here is what I have found at a portable applications forum:

TCC (Take Command Console) is the new name for 4NT, which is now free in its basic (LE) version. I used 4NT for years, and it's a great console replacement for CMD, but until now it wasn't free. See home page at

and the direct download link is at

To install, I ran the exe installer, then copied all files and uninstalled it. By default it writes its settings to C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\JPSoft\TCMD.INI, but copying this file to the application's directory made it use the local copy exclusively.

I tested with procmon, and couldn't find any other reason to suspect it's not portable.
