At the DOS prompt try typing:

cd windows (press enter) then when you get the C:\Windows prompt type

win (press enter)

Hi CD Win is waiting for further command when I hit enter its not moved.

CD win was invalid directory

win is the command to start windows.

windows is the directory you need to cd to.

post a copy of your autoexec.bat file

Also I seem to remember you need to put DOS 6.2 on before installing Win 3.11???

I thought I had all the floppies for this operation but having looked through them I find I have all the 3 DOS 6.22 disks and 8 Windows for Workgroups 3.11 but, unfortunately, I seem to have 2 disk no. 4 and no disk no. 3

But you are welcome to have them if you like to email me via the envelope.

Lost the prompt whats the best way to get promt back using a 6.22 disk, or inserting WIN 95 / 98.

  Ex plorer 17:33 04 Dec 05

I Loaded 6.22 on before loading 3.11
