Command Text Unreadable with Black Background


The Shell output is displayed using black text on a black background, rendering the text unreadable until you highlight it. See screenshot.

AFAIK this only happens when using the silver theme on Windows XP. Does it work when you change your theme to blue or olive or when you disable it?

Yep, thanks for that. I am running Windows XP SP3 with the silver theme and changing to either the olive theme or the blue theme resolves the issue because the text is displayed in white with a black background. It's been a few years since I worked on a desktop GUI - what's the deal with this behavior? Seems like kind of an odd issue. Thanks again!
