To obtain more information about and CSword itself see here.
Compatibility Sword (or CSword as its often referred to as) is a very lightweight (less than 100KB) application that works wonders to bring Windows to compatibility terms with some of your older applications that don't care to function otherwise in newer versions of Windows (especially UAC enabled environments like Windows Vista or Windows 7). Where'd the name come from? Sword is the knight's offensive tool, and since UAC (represented by a colorful shield) seems to stop some older applications dead in their track the name seemed most appropriate. Compatibility Sword was designed with the user in mind. That is, its small enough to be portable, does exactly what the user expects it to, and doesn't leave any traces of itself behind when done. It is the compatibility tool of choice for anyone's portable toolkit. CSword is great as a regular tool of use now thanks to integration of former utility FileDir2Prompt's features, which allow you to quickly open a command prompt window to a paticular directory or keep a console window open for a console application that would normally close and prevent you from seeing the output or providing any additonal commands. You never haft to alter the file properties yourself or worry about anything being left behind. Let CSword take care of all the work of application compatibility matters and concentrate at the task at hand with the older application. Administrators well appreciate Compatibility Sword's ability to be scripted, because CSword can also run all common functions from the command line. Setting up a simple script or shortcut for end users to adjust compatibility settings has never been as easy until now.
