The Windows NT command prompt, or Single Command Shell (SCS), has a command-line limit of 1024 characters.

In Windows NT, the command prompt is a 32-bit character-based interface to Windows NT and all of its supported subsystems and file systems. The Windows NT command prompt is often referred to as the Single Command Shell, because there is one command prompt for all functions.
