Command Prompt Closes Instantly?

Feb 27, 2011

I have two computers running Windows 7 x64. On both of them, whenever I try to open a command line program it closes after a fraction of a second. This happens when I use ipconfig, and hldsupdatetool. This only started happening recently, sometime in the last few weeks, and I have no idea why.I am aware that I can use cmd and then type ipconfig, but this doesn't work for hldsupdatetool, and it takes much longer than just double clicking or typing ipconfig in the start menu search.

It went too fast, I couldn't read what it had said on the prompt.

Command To Change The Path Using Environment Variable From Command Prompt?

Jun 9, 2012

In UNIX, for changing the directory path, there is "cd" command. .This works fine in windows 7 too.. But the problem comes when we are trying to change the path using environment variables. .

In UNIX, cd $JAVA_HOME changes the path to the value set for JAVA_HOME,

Similarly is there any command in Windows which does the trick from command prompt for changing path using Environment variables. .

Run Administrative Command Prompt From Command Prompt

Jul 22, 2011

Ok So I got myself into a unique bind here. I was trying to install some custom system files (for a theme) and I did it wrong and now I cant open explorer.exe . I dont want to goto a backup because this is a easy fix. (in my view). So I need to know how to run command prompt with administrative privleges from command prompt.

I am trying to do this command: copy explorer.exe C:Windows

So if there is also another command I can just tack onto that that gives me admin rights to do it. I would be happy.

Command Prompt Not Appearing?

Aug 28, 2011

I am trying to run command prompt in windows 7 professional, but it is not appearing in front of me.

1. I tried to run it from Start --> Accessories --> Command Prompt

2. I tried to run by typing cmd on the start menu and then finding the .exe file

3. I tried to run using Run command by typing cmd in Run dialog box

4. I tried to run it from C:/Windows/system32 folder

5. I also tried to run it using right click and then selecting Run as Administrator

But whatever I tried to do I cannot see the command prompt window.Also, when I run the task manager, I can only see the cmd.exe running in the 'processes tab' and that too one new process for each time I have clicked on the cmd.exe.But it does not show cmd.exe in the 'applications tab' where it should be showing.

Can't Get Command Prompt Out Of Drive X

Aug 10, 2011

My computer (Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7 Home Premium) acquired some sort of terrible virus and shut itself down. When I try to turn it on, it goes into startup repair, and startup repair always fails. I have tried every single system restore point, and that fails too. When I try to start it in any of the safe modes, it simply goes back to startup repair and fails again.

He was able to access C: in command prompt. All my files are in their original locations and haven't been corrupted, but there are also four folders with names like xisdfl83lkd02 (seriously) which definitely weren't there before and presumably contain whatever has crippled my precious laptop. Whenever he tried to delete those folders, the command prompt looked like it had accepted the delete command, but then when he went back into C they were still there. So the bad files are immortal or something.

He said he was able to move things around, so I should get an external hard drive to back up my files, wipe the computer back to factory settings, then put my files back on it from the external hard drive. Well, now I have an external hard drive but don't have him around to do this.

I have absolutely no experience with command prompt, and I've read a bunch of tutorials on how to use it, but they aren't dumbed down enough for me to understand them. I need someone to walk me through it.

I can access the command prompt, but it goes into X:\sources\recovery\Tools> as a starting line. The thing at the top says Administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe. I didn't even know X was a real drive. I try to get it to C and it just goes back to X. When I type cd E:\ or cd F:\ trying to figure out where my external hard drive is, E says "The device is not ready" and F takes me right back to X:\sources\recovery\Tools>.

How do I get to the directory where I can find my files and move them to the hard drive?

We weren't able to catch a glimpse of what it said until today, as the pop up is literally less than a second long.We recorded her screen and were able to pause at the time of the pop up, discovering what the pop up is.

Tip For Elevated Command Prompt?

Feb 9, 2012

This probably is not new to many, but I find it useful.There are times I want an elevated command prompt. I usually type in "cmd", right click on it and run as administrator. If you need an elevated command prompt now and then, simply create a shortcut to "cmd". Right click on the shortcut, left click on properties. Click the shortcut tab and select "advanced". Finally, you can select "run as administrator".Like I said, just something I didn't think about before, but it's handy to have.

Elevated Command Prompt Over SSH?

Jan 27, 2013

I'm using a SSH server to remotely access my notebook from work. It works well for SFTP and remote command line access using a dedicated, non-admin, user account.Problem is when I want to run something that requires admin permission under that connection. The server runs cmd.exe under the context of a non-admin user I've created for it, so I'm limited in what I can do. Question is, how can I "elevate" that remote command prompt to execute admin-only programs and commands? UAC of course will not help under that conditions.
