IPconfig flashes off when selected to run

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Q2hyaXNH?=, Oct 30, 2004.

  1. When I try to run IPconfig using Run suddenly it (the DOS window) flashes on
    momentarily only and then disappears without giving me chance toread anything.

    Has anyone come accross this?

    Worked a week or so ago.

    That's because it's a command prompt utility.

    If you want to use it you firstly need to open a command prompt using the
    following steps:

    -Click on Start
    -Click on Run
    -Type cmd and press enter

    Now you can type ipconfig without it all disappearing :)

    Probably it worked a week ago on another computer, with win98.
    Now you're using XP.
