>>How can i use DevCon from the command line

Extract/move the files to any folder in your PATH (or %WINDIR% - maybe "system32") and just type

devcon

on the command line.

Oh, BTW, make sure to only extract/install/copy/move the "DevCon.exe" from the i386 folder, the other one is for Alpha processors.
