Autoexec for XP

     How does one set the autoexec.bat of a dos box under XP?

RE: Autoexec for XP

try msconfig in the Start>Run... menu

or hold <WindowKey> (between Ctrl & Alt) and press 'R'

This will bring up a Run Program dialog

type: 'msconfig' and press enter

this will bring up another dialog where you can setup the window Autoexec, ini files, startup apps...

Good Luck

Sometimes... the BASIC things in life are the best...

or at least the most fun

RE: Autoexec for XP

     I know that program but it doesn't have anything in it to let me set the path of a dos box when it's created.

RE: Autoexec for XP

Use environment settings in System properties.

RE: Autoexec for XP

     Aha!  Thanks.
