command prompt problem

Posted: 02-21-2008, 11:30 PM
I need to enter a command in the command prompt by entering "c:\program
files\xxx" however the command prompt is forcing "c:users\111\program
files\xxx" I am the only user on the computer how do I get around this?
Thanks for your help

Mike,
I'm a little confused about what you're asking. Is the issue 'how to change
the path that shows in the command window'?
If so, at the prompt just enter the following:
cd c:\program files\xxx
The path will then show as c:\program files\xxx .
At that point you can enter the desired command.
