Thread: RUN dont seem to work..

  1. #1

    Unhappy RUN dont seem to work..

    Everytime I hit a command on RUN (like msconfig etc..) it always tells me "Cannot find the file"Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available".
    What could be the problem. What are those unavailable files? The only command initiated in run which seems to work is ping.
    Thanks in advance!

    well, first see if the commands point to a program this is actually on your computer. search for netstat, tracert, winipcfg, msconfig, fdisk, any other DOS programs. If they arent on your computer, that would be your problem.

And the whole time, I was thinking, \"I\'m a grown man. I should know what goes on my head.\" And the more I thought about it... the more I realized that I should just blow my brains out and end it all. But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blowing my brains out... I start worrying about what that was going to do to my goddamn carpet. Okay, so, ah-he, that was a GOOD day, Doc. And, and I just want you to give me some pills and let me get on with my life. \" -Roy Waller

    My bet would be your path environment variable got messed up some how...
    Try using run with the full path eg: "c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe" and see if it works.
    Also start a command prompt and type "path", make sure it contains the system folders; if it doesn't add it/them with "set path=C:\windows\system32;%path%;"

    Ok i tried using the full path and adding them "set path"..but it didnt work. I tried searching for DOS commands and i guess slick8790 is right..they arent in my computer.

    You should be able to download them from Microsoft or you could search our great internet for them or better yet, they should be on your cd's somewhere.

    Try the first option first.
