Hi,
CMD Might not working because of any of the following reasons.
1. cmd.exe not available in Windows\System32 folder
2. cmd.exe might be hidden in Windows\System32
3. current user might not be having permissions to execute cmd.exe
Solution:
1. search cmd.exe from local disk or installation disk and copy to windows\system32 folder
2. Right click cmd.exe and remove system and hidden attribute
3. Change the permission for cmd.exe to read and execute

Hope it will work, if not please call me 9899780221

Thanks

Cant find my ip adress


Greetings - It's fairly easy in Windows.

Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar. Click 'Run...' on this menu.

Type 'cmd' in the text box that appears. A command prompt window launches on the desktop (white text on black background).

In this command window, type 'ipconfig /all" then hit ENTER. Details are shown for each of the computer's network adapters. Computers installed with VPN software or emulation software will possess one or more virtual adapters.

The 'IP Address' field states the current IP address for that network adapter (you'll have just one).

Happy Networking!

From the Desktop:

Follow the steps provided by the window. The phone activation process should only take about 6 minutes.

Once you do that, Internet Explorer or Firefox browser will open. In the address bar type "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" press enter, a new window will come up, type: slui 4 and hit enter and follow steps to Activate over the Phone.


This all is if you have a true bought copy of Vista. If you have a pirated version, Im sorry to say I cant help.

This program cannot be run under win32 mode.


To correct and solve this error, follow this steps:

1. Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)
2. Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.
3. Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5. Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:

del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
9. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):

“Userinit”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,”

If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.

Not working


Do a file search for cmd.exe and then you can create a shortcut on your desktop pointing to it and then in double quotes put the location of the application you are trying to execute, ie.. It should be located on c:\windows\system32 - cmd.exe

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe - in Properties Target and put this in double quotes and then your application with the full path in double quotes after that.
