Just now, I was reading posts here when a Command Prompt (black) windows opened, titled taskeng.exe. This is the Task Scheduler, right? Why is it opening a Command Prompt window, never did this before. I noticed The Windows update icon is now in the System area of the TaskBar, so I suspect it was Automatic Updates kicking in, but why the black CP window?
I was trying to fix an issue where .exe files would not open at all. The person who answered my question gave a link to a Kioskea tutorial, which I followed and while it did fix the issue, it brought up a new one: All .exe files open with Command Prompt, so I have to type the filename itself before it will open.
I can show hidden files using the 'Tools, Folder Options, View' path, but I was just wondering if anyone knows of a way to do this with a single action e.g. with the command prompt. My web searches only turn up ways to change the attributes of individual files/folders. It's not really a problem, I'm just looking for a shortcut :)
I have what I thought should be a relatively straightforward question: What do I type in the command prompt in Windows 7 to extract all the files from inside an .exe? I remember doing it once a long while back, but I forgot how and Google is being especially unhelpful.One result instructed me to navigate to the file's location and type:
filename.exe /A /P C:destinationfolder
but that didn't work. I assumed it was for an older Windows version. Google got its hit from a comment saying it didn't work on Windows 7...
I can't open any files in any Office or OpenOffice program going through File>Open. I can double-click a file within a folder and it will open fine.
I don't have this issue in any other program that I regularly use. Just anything Office or OpenOffice. Here is an image of what I wind up with if trying to attach an image in Outlook. In Outlook I cannot attach a file to an email or Save an attachment. I can double-click in Outlook to open an attachment.
Anyone run into this type of issue before or any suggestions of where I can even begin to look to resolve?
Trying to create a batch file for Windows 7 to run a command (elevated ) in command prompt?User: is an administrator or in administrator group ( but actual administrator account may be disabled )essentially need to be able to double click the *****.bat filehave it open up cmd in elevated ( run as administrator ) , run the command in the dos window and reboot the computer.
I have a program that uses it's own library. The path to this library can't be changed, and it's inside the "Program Files" folder. And the software itself has to be installed inside "Program Files" too, otherwise it won't work correctly (it's a new release and still a bit buggy).Now, when I add something to this library, it's supposed to be present in the library folder. BUT Win 7 doesn't show me any files that have been created by programs inside the "Program Files" folder. The folder where the new library is supposed to be is empty. But the library is there inside the program, so it has to be somewhere.Now, how am I supposed to backup those files if I can't access them?
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.
Does any one know how to get the win.ini missing fixed when opening bootcfg/msconfig not found. Also How to change "forcing changes in msconifg" to "not forcing changes" in msconfig from command prompt, as well as opening msconfig from command prompt w/ dos command(s) / paramteters.
I recently ran into an issue where this installation on Windows 7 Pro 32-bit is trying to open up all my programs in Word, they all have the MS word icon as well, so for instance, when I click on Nero, it will try to open it up in word and we get an error because it is not a word file. This is on all Program .exe files. There are no options to change the file association in the default programs in control panel. I have only seen a few fixes for this which involve the registry, I have checked these, however, all registry keys are correct. System restore fails as well, have tried multiple restore points to no avail. We have also ran norton, and malwarebytes on the system is it runs clean.
I'm having an issue on my computer where command prompt will not open. I looked in the system32 folder and cmd.exe is missing, however there is cmd.exe.mui is there. I also tried to run hijackthis to get a log, however the program keeps spitting out a blank log when I click save log.
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.
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?
Alright so for the past few days my girlfriend's computer has been having a very quick command-prompt-looking pop-up within 10 minutes of starting up. 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.
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.
so today i tried to open my command prompt because i tend to allocate more ram to minecraft whenever i play. I searched for it, and it was not even there. i searched cmd, went into accessories, and even did SHIFT-RC and it said "application not found". so is there any way i can get this back?
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.
