No commands are working in my Command Prompt. I just get left with the following error.

'command' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

 

Running in elevated cmd as well

 

I already ran an echo and this was the result

Any help fixing would be great. Thanks.

Hi :welcome:
 
Don't know why but the problem you have is common around here...
 
Before trying to fix that I need to see a log.
  • download CheckPath.cmd script and save it to the Desktop
  • right click CheckPath.cmd, then on the context menu click Run As Administrator
  • when the script ends Notepad will open showing a log CheckPath.txt also saved on the Desktop
  • Copy & Paste the full log to your topic

This part of the batch files doesn't work for me:

 

set KEY=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment
echo. >> %LOG%
echo :: Reading User PATH from Registry... >> %LOG%
reg query "%KEY%" /v Path >> %LOG% 2>&1

 

 

Yields:

 

:: Reading User PATH from Registry...

ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.

 

 

This is what HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment has:

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment
    _NT_SYMBOL_PATH    REG_SZ    SRV*G:\Symbols*http://msdl.microsof...ownload/symbols
    devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices    REG_SZ    1
    TEMP    REG_EXPAND_SZ    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp
    TMP    REG_EXPAND_SZ    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp
    xpath    REG_SZ    d:\x2

Hi Rich,

set KEY=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment
echo. >> %LOG%
echo :: Reading User PATH from Registry... >> %LOG%
reg query "%KEY%" /v Path >> %LOG% 2>&1

 

 

Yields:

 

:: Reading User PATH from Registry...

ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.

 

 

This is what HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment has:

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment
    _NT_SYMBOL_PATH    REG_SZ    SRV*G:\Symbols*http://msdl.microsof...ownload/symbols
    devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices    REG_SZ    1
    TEMP    REG_EXPAND_SZ    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp
    TMP    REG_EXPAND_SZ    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp
    xpath    REG_SZ    d:\x2

 

 

 

It's ok and expected. It's possible to have the PATH defined also at the user level if it exists the system will combine the two the global and the added by the user.
