Command.com does not bring command shell in win2000
Posted on 2005-04-22
I have a problem with my command.com in win2000.
If i locate the file in explorer and run it a black window appears for a sec and dissapears.
cmd brings up the expected command shell, but it i type edit I will be returned to the shell
and no edit program appears. typing notepad filename will open the filename in notepad.
dos based self extracting files will not extract, just returns to the command prompt.
Trying to run the from explorer gives the same problem.
The problem may be with 16bit programs, I am unsure.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
