  2. ^ lol. Epic response
  3. Try this.

    Instead of using a command such as [edit textfile.txt], use [notepad textfile.txt].

    Just found out that edit was unavailable in W7 64-bit and found that this alternative works.

    Edit.com is/was a 16-bit program originally from DOS, so it would not work for that reason in 64 bit Windows.

    I actually used it sometimes on Windows 2003, because it had some better capability than Notepad to handle certain foreign characters.
