Hi wesweber,

The described functionality is not currently available.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database for access to cmd.exe (or Powershell) inside of SecureCRT window (Windows local shell). Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #11263" in the subject line.

Local shell support has been implemented in SecureCRT 8.7*, which is in beta. The installer can be downloaded here:



* Must be running Windows 10 build 1809 or later (or Server 2019)
