I'm trying to create an external tool that will open a new Windows Command console window in the current directory. I've tried several variations of the following but none work. Any suggestions?

Program: start


Working Directory: $FileDir$

Program: cmd

Parameters:/k pwd

Working Directory: $FileDir$

Using 'start' as the Program results in an error dialog with the message "CreateProcess: start error=2".

It's simple, just create external tool with "cmd" as a program and without parameters. When it runs, it will start in current dir.
