    DOs commands are not working

    Locked

    by itpro128 ·

    I feel/know one of my colleague has made some changes/rename with these files to prove his genius!??. When I type these commands,

    c:\.>fdisk

    ‘fdisk’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program
    or batch file.

    c:\>poledit
    Cannot find the file ‘poledit’ (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename
    are correct and that all required libraries are available.
    can you help me.

      One thing you could try is issuing the PATH command at a command prompt. It will show you the value of the variable. It may be that the value has been changed and issuing the FDISK or POLEDIT fails since it’s only searching the directories in the path.

      You can also try copying them from another computer onto yours.

      Hope these help.

      If you have an emergency boot disk, you should have fdisk in it.

      First what operating system are you using? Poledit, unless you had already manually added it to your present system is only available by download or in NT Server. Second change directories to DOS “cd dos” then issue fdisk command. It is important to know your OS. NT or 2000 will not have this dos directory with this command.

      poledit is also available on the Win95 cd. You can find it in admin/apptools

      I’ll take a stab at this one.

      First make sure the programs you are trying to run exist on the system by doing a search. Once you’ve confirmed that the files do exist, note the location of the files.

      Next, you need to make sure that the windows installation path hasn’t changed.

      To find the ?Installation Path?, select Start/Run, type regedit, and press . Select My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup in the left pane, and in the right pane, find the value named ?SourcePath?. The installation path is listed in the Data Field. Make sure this path is pointing to the proper location, ie, C:\Windows

      Good Luck
