msh: Microsoft Command Shell (Codename: Monad) Beta 2 Refresh

In combination with last week's release of Version 2.0 of the .NET Framework, I'm excited to report we also released a Beta 2 refresh of "msh" for Version 2.0 of the .NET Framework. You can download the bits from the following locations:

Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86, x64 build also available)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5&DisplayLang=en

Windows "Monad" Shell Beta 2 for .NET Framework 2.0 RC/RTM (x86, x64 build also available)*

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=766e6908-354d-44d4-80fd-73e172b8e85d&DisplayLang=en

* Registration Required

Keep in mind "msh" is built on top of .NET so you'll need to install .NET before you install "msh". Also make sure you read the "releasenotes-b2rtm.htm" -and- "about_signing.help.txt" in the "monad_b2_50727_x86.zip" download package. Give me a shout if you have any questions or problems.

We also released an impressive documentation pack to help you quickly get up to speed on "msh". You can download the documentation pack at:

Additional "msh" resources are provided below for your convenience.
