Should the MS-DOS short cut work in XP

  eboz 19:39 24 Oct 2003

I was digging around in windows XP and I found a short cut to MS-DOS, when I click on it I get a message saying - Invalid program file name, Please check your pif file. Choose close to terminate the application. Is this normal? Is there a way around it?

any commands you want to use in xp should be directed at the command prompt in accessories

If your XP is an upgrade, that could be an invalid shortcut left over from Windows 9x.
