[WinXP] Getting an “unrecognized internal/external command…” error on MS-DOS for valid commands
When I issue legitimate commands on MS-DOS such as "ping" and "ipconfig", the error below always pop up:
"[command] is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file."
You can refer to the attached image. However, when I change the directory to "C:WINDOWSsystem32", the commands will work. Setting the directory to anything else will fail.
I'm using Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3. Also, I have another computer using the same OS, yet I can type in commands anywhere without getting the error. What could be wrong?
Hoping for your feedback.
