Normally, when you exit an MS-DOS-based application, Windows NT returns to the Windows NT command interpreter, CMD.EXE. However, by default, when you run a TSR or temporarily suspend an MS-DOS-based application to return to the command prompt, Windows NT runs COMMAND.COM, the command interpreter for the MS-DOS environment. This preserves the MS-DOS environment, allowing you to use the TSR immediately.

Because starting and running other types of applications from the COMMAND.COM prompt can disrupt a TSR or suspended MS-DOS-based application, Windows NT provides the dosonly command. The dosonly command allows only MS-DOS-based applications to be started from the COMMAND.COM prompt. You can include the dosonly command in your CONFIG.NT file or the equivalent custom startup file in an applications PIF.
