    With XP Pro SP2 when trying to use the "subst" command in the same way it
    has worked many times in the past windows now responds with the following
    message:

    "'subst' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable
    program or batch file."

    However when I use an older version of DOS it works.

    New DOS ver="Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]" ---DOES NOT WORK

    Old one that works ver="Windows NT Version 5.1" ----WORKS

    Why?
