win (press enter)

Hi CD Win is waiting for further command when I hit enter its not moved.

CD win was invalid directory

CD means change Directory. What is the Prompt showing when you start th comp?

win is the command to start windows.

windows is the directory you need to cd to.

post a copy of your autoexec.bat file

Also I seem to remember you need to put DOS 6.2 on before installing Win 3.11???

I thought I had all the floppies for this operation but having looked through them I find I have all the 3 DOS 6.22 disks and 8 Windows for Workgroups 3.11 but, unfortunately, I seem to have 2 disk no. 4 and no disk no. 3

But you are welcome to have them if you like to email me via the envelope.

Lost the prompt whats the best way to get promt back using a 6.22 disk, or inserting WIN 95 / 98.

  Ex plorer 17:33 04 Dec 2005

I Loaded 6.22 on before loading 3.11
