I recently rebuilt my Windows XP Pro laptop with a clean install. I
discovered today that upon trying to run some command line syntax, my laptop
is not recognizing any normal commands (ie. ping, ipconfig, nslookup, etc..)

I am receiving a message "'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or
external command, operable program or batch file."

Has anyone seen this before? I run cmd line often and need this to work.
Is there something that didn't install properly or do I need to execute a
file within my system32 directory to activate this area of my OS?

Please advise.

Thank you in advance,

Is it fully updated? I think I'd start with start > run > type "sfc
/scannow" (not the space and don't use quotes) and inserting the CD when
asked. I can't think of a better solution and at this point it makes me
think that it's *hopefully* just a botched installation. If it's a really
new install and you have a spare hour I'd consider a repair installation if
the system file check doesn't work.

Either ATI or NVidia (and I've not heard of nvidia doing this) setup program probably screwed up your registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment

Path is listed under here. It must be a Reg_Expand_SZ data type (aka Expandable String value) not Reg_SZ (String value).

Delete and recreate correctly. Type path again to see the difference.

Expandable strings tell whatever program is reading the registry that they need to expand environmental variables in what they read.

Thank you. I will change the path to Reg_Expand_SZ. Does the Value need to
stay the same? "Value:
%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program
Files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control Panel;C:\Program Files\NVIDIA
Corporation\NVIDIA DDS Utilities".

Just double checking before I make the change.

The first three parts do. The last two parts are both video cards. Unless you have two video cards one must be old.

Not that it matters if you leave them. And deleting them will cause at worse a minor problem (maybe ATI control panel stops working - when was the last time you used that?). Be safe or be daring.

I wouldn't remove it normally. But if I was testing something and removed it I wouldn't bother to put it back.

David,

Thank you for your help. The registry change worked. I can now use command
line syntax. I appreciate it!
