# Using Switch.exe

`switch.exe` was written by Mark Bradshaw and is part of the Network Simplicity OpenSSH package. It uses `cmd.exe` normally or if it detects command line options will switch to `/bin/sh`. Grab a copy of the source from their now unsupported package and compile this.

## Installation

Place the resulting executable in `C:\Program Files\OpenSSH\bin` and for those users applicable change the password fields in `C:\Program Files\OpenSSH\etc\passwd` to `/bin/switch`.

Since `switch.exe` uses `/bin/sh`, which requires some additional Cygwin libraries to run.
