Hey ppl,
I wrote an app for making windows transparent (changing alpha blending), and i found an interesting thing: The CMD window doesnt get transparent...
So how do i make it transparent? is it possible?

Well window FX won't make it transparent and the only app I know that skinns it is windows blinds, both of those you have to pay for so I would GUESS that it is not possible or at least not practical... :-/ Don't know for sure though.

Not even Windowblinds (I'm pretty sure) will make command windows transparent. I think it's some underlying thing about DOS, but I honestly have no clue.
