Windows command prompt

I have been unable to find any documentation or other advice in regards to getting a Windows command prompt to run in a bottle.
I am having problems with an application not seeing environment variables and it would be helpful for diagnosing the problem if I
could run cmd.exe and print the values of the variables to see what is going on.

You can run a command something like this:
cxoffice/bin/wine --bottle <your-bottle> --wl-app cmd
and you'll get a command prompt.

However, you may find it easier to set environment variables
in whatever linux shell you're using; they should flow through.

Cheers,

Jeremy
