I need help with my autoexec file
I changed it since I got my java compiler installed again. I first changed the path to where my java compiler is located. I also changed the classpath to say set classpath=. Because it was showing set classpath=c:\program files\adobe\etc and that wont let you run programs. Well it works fine, but as soon as I go into dos, it says bad command. And it always erases the line that says "set classpath=". I changed it back to the adobe directory it was on and I still get a bad command. Here's my whole file. Maybe I missed something:
what in that would cause a bad command?
Bad command means dos doesn't recognize the command you supply. Set is a valid command so it can't cause that.
It says bad command even thou you don't do anything? Could you supply the full autoexec.bat instead of the environmental values only?
That is the full file. I'm running Windows ME if that makes any difference. Maybe it doesnt have anything to do with this file...but what else would affect it?
I don't think autoexec.bat problem.
When you say:
I'll assume that means DOS box, not boot to DOS. Anyway, check the properties on command.com, Program tab. See if you are running something every time you start a DOS box. Heck check all tabs whilst you are at it...
BTW, in DOS box type 'path', hit enter. Are all of your environment vars set as in autoexec?
Yeah I dont boot into DOS to compile. I didn't see anythign in command.com properties out of the ordinary. Just selections for window size, fonts, mouse, etc. My path is just set at my java directory. Maybe I need path=c:\windows;c:\jdk1.2.2.\bin. But the path is the last line on the autoexec file.....
Your path statement in Autoexec.bat is inaccurate. It should read -
No other command lines (e.g., classpath) are needed except the ones that are usually run in Autoexec.bat.
If you still have a problem after entering this line, re-install your OS. It will set the record straight.
