OS: Windows 7 Ultimate running in a VMware Virtual Machine
Toolset: UnixUtils (FIles timestamp, 6/20/2003 4:57 PM, obtained here:
Updates are installed.
Tools are located on the C:\ drive of the virtual machine, in C:\bin.
My MS Windows CMD window PATH is configured to see the C:\bin folder.
In the CMD window, when I run a command such as 'ls', without the .exe extension, an error message appears,
"This version of c:\bin\LS.COM is not compatible with the version of Windows you' re running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need a x 86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the softwar e publisher."
NOTE: When I include the file extension, 'ls.exe', it works just fine with or without arguments, so it is NOT a problem with the PATH. Providing the path, such as '\bin\ls' does not work, either.
Is there something I can do to allow the UNIX commands to run in the CMD window WITHOUT the file extension?
