I was wondering if there was a way to run Ps Tools from any directory I might be in in DOS? I have to navigate to the c:\pstools directory every time I want to run a command, but is there any way to run them from whatever directory I might be in?

thanks

I usually just place all my pstools right in the C:\Windows\system32 folder
You don't have to add to your path that way...

in your case, since you already have them in c:\pstools, do this from a command line:

xcopy c:\pstools\*.* %systemroot%\system32
