I have a Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 server. When I launch CMD.EXE, the prompt shows the short path. Note that using DIR works properly, showing the full long filename path. Only the prompt itself defaults to the short path. Verified that the PROMPT environment variable is correctly set to $P$G. Verified that there are no other variables that would affect the prompt. Verified that there is no unusual garbage in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Command Processor. Verified that we are, in fact, running the NT command processor (CMD.EXE) and not the legacy console (COMMAND.COM). Any ideas?
