Installing net.exe command line

I have a windows 2000 server that did not come with net.exe installed

Where do I get net.exe?

Where do I put net.exe so that the path allows the command to work in any folder?

It resides in the c:\windows\system32 directory.  That's where you should put it, and it will work fine.

Check your PATH statement in the Enivronment Variable section on the System Properties.  My bet is that C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32  are missing.

Is net.exe in the c:\windows\system32 directory already?

If not, just grab it from another machine.

If so, like netman said.

just type path in the cmd prompt and see if the location is there...

Hmm...I did see a forum that said someone else got this error and uninstalled and reinstalled some windows updates.

Have you tried reapplying SP4?  (you did say you were running windows 2000, even though this is the 2003 channel)

Try reinstalling SP1, if that doesn't work, do an sfc /scannow from the run line.

I haven't seen the issue you are referring to, so I'm throwing out ideas.
