Tools that can be used to develop software for the Windows subsystem of OS/2, can turn out code for OS/2 or eComStation from a MS Windows environment (Cross compilation or other cross platform capabilities) or tools that can turn out Windows code from an eCS environment, or have some OS/2 specific utility or support even though they are primarily Windows executables. Also tools that allow interoperation-ability between OS/2 based systems and Windows systems be that in an interactive way such as networking and communications or simpler tools that allow the use or viewing of OS/2 related file formats in a Windows environment.

In addition tools that are or were available for both OS/2 and Windows may be tagged as Windows Tools as well even though the Windows executable has no specific OS/2 related utility or function. This is because merely the existence of the same tool on two or more platforms may not just help in porting an application from one system to another even if there is a version mismatch, it also help in the planning of a multi-target project that makes, or potentially makes use of the tool, effectively making the tool a part of the target API by proxy.
