Current Project Command Prompt for VS.NET. Another answer from the VS.NET Info Center Q&A Forum describing how to start a command prompt and the file explorer in the directory of the current project. [ Windows Developer News]

I found this to be a very useful tip.  I noticed that Chris appeared to be running VS.NET out of, logically, C:\VS.NET, when the default is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio.NET.  I ended up using Short File Names ala cmd /k c:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~3.NET\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat as no combination of quoted long file names seemed to work. 

Great tip though, so I added two external tools, one for the Command Shell in Project Dir and Windows Explorer in Project Dir.
