Hi,

I need to "simply" login using command prompt after "safe mode with command prompt" without all the available bells and whistles. Am not good at "DOS"

Thanks,
Joe

You don't login

You get to run command line utilities and diagnostic tools if your system is completely toasted.

Given your level of expertise, what is your issue that you feel you need to command prompt for and for which no other Safe Mode stuff is appropriate?

Need to login using command prompt after "safe mode with command prompt"

by joestar7 In reply to You don't login

Hi,

The solution to my problem requires me to log on using a command prompt in safe mode. All the command prompt syntaxes are too complicated. Can't imagine why this command needs to be so complex, eg Net User [username [password | *] [options]] [/DOMAIN].

Thanks,
Joe

If you aren't being asked for a password

by seanferd In reply to Need to login using comma ...

you are already logged in.

You are trying to log on to a domain via the command prompt? Net User doesn't log you in, it creates users and passwords on servers. You want Net Use. Slightly less complicated, but it is how it is. How can you log on without specifying who you are and what you are trying to log on to?

There is no other way to do it.

Need clarification

Are you trying to remote into another system?

If not and you are booting into Safe Mode with a command prompt, then at the command prompt, just type explorer.exe

Safe mode is NOT "DOS command line"

by TobiF In reply to Need to login using comma ...

If you're talking about Windows, then, since several versions, Safe Mode is still a graphic interface. If login is needed to start windows, then you'll still have to enter your login credentials.

Safe Mode simply means that Windows won't fire up all autostart programs, additional drivers etc. If something in your normal startup settings causes windows to fail, then you have good chances that Safe Mode will present you with a working environment. But your screen resolution will be VGA, your internet connection may not work etc.

If you really need the command line, you'd have to start an instance of "cmd.com" from windows. (Flag+R, enter the word CMD and hit enter)

EditAdd: After carefully reading all other posts in this topic, I'm still not sure managed to understand the question correctly, so I may actually be off topic. If that's the case, then I hope you still find your way forward.
