Goto dos prompt. type "copy con a.bat" and press the return key. Then type "ipconfig /flushdns" and press ctrl+z. This will create a.bat which should be as good as an exe file

Where does it copy it to?  I did that and it said 1 file copied...I still need that file to send to people.

Thanks

once you are at the promop it should say something like

C:\Documents and Settings\Rajesh>

In the above example you can access the file by starting windows explorer - gooing to c drive - documents and setting folder and then Rajesh folder

You can also create the file in the root of your drive by typing "C:\" and return key before creating the file...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

if you are still unable to find it, you can always try searching for a.bat (start-search)
