Hi,

when I open the command prompt on my Win XP prof., and I write ipconfig, it doesn't recognize the command. Any ideas? It's a laptop I borrowed from the university.

regards,

henrik

    Hello,
    When you have the command prompt open look at the path it is showing
    e.g. c:\documents and settings\username>

    now check this path to see if there is a file with the name ipconfig already there.
    Or you can simply issue the command from a different directory by using the cd command

    cd\ will bring you to the root of the drive

    When you are at the CMD prompt, type the Path command, as in this example from my system:

    Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

    C:\Documents and Settings\LeeTutor>path
    PATH=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared

    C:\Documents and Settings\LeeTutor>

    Note that the PATH setting includes C:\Windows\system32 as one of its components.  Probably yours doesn't, for some reason.  See this article for how to do it:
