Telnet for Windows Vista & Windows 7

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/05/20

I wrote about Telnet for Windows Vista & Windows 7.

These steps are even easier:

  1. Press the Windows key
  2. type “turn windows features on or off”
  3. choose “Telnet Client”
  4. press OK
  5. wait a few seconds for the install to complete

    I’ve tried to go a little further and installed Subsystem for UNIX-based Application AND appropriate Utilities and SDK for UNIX-based Applications. Now sshd service is running on my Windows 7 machine :)

    But because of enabling “Change the default behavior to case sensitive” during install of Utilites and SDK I’ve run into this issue: there are two directories in C:\Program Files\Common Files\ “Microsoft Shared” and lowercase “microsoft shared”. Windows itself show files from one directory only, any unix shell gives opportunity to work either direcories and even merge them.

    And even more I have two of these directories after every reboot! That caused some problems already. SQL Server Manager Studio needs some files from Microsoft Shared and there are a lot files for other Microsoft applications. And all of these important files became unavailable! I don’t know what application or Windows 7 itself causes creation of “Microsoft Shared”, because in clean Windows 7 the name is lowercase. And don’t know why newly created directory overtakes existed one. Not sure if symbolic link can help here, but shall try this.

    By the way, case-insensitive flag can be enabled in registry
    [HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\kernel]
    But don’t do it, if you don’t have SUA and Utilities installed! It may be that files C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared got hidden in counterpart directory and you can nothing to do with that.
