  1. Hello; I'm having a problem with the registry so I had made this .bat file to fix this issue but for some reason I can not execute the file. I'm using windows recovery console and I'm typing the name of the file to execute it. It's been a while so I'm wondering if I need an extra command to run it?
    Can anyone please help?

    thanks alot!

    Make sure the file name/path is in quotes, and also that you include the file extension, is all I can suggest... :S does it give an error message? if so what is it?

    try
    • get a command prompt
    • cd to the folder which contains the file and then enter
    • .\filename.bat
