I wont be able to view the picture until tomorrow when the moderators approve it.
But the DOS screen is what you want. If you were able to run the Command Prompt (black DOS screen) as admin, you should be able to type the command that I gave you (you have already done those steps earlier, just not as admin). The DOS screen will look the same, but it will act differently - it will allow that command to be run without giving you the "access denied" error.
What I'm asking you to do is nothing more than you did earlier today, With the exception of the "run as administrator" portion.
How do you feel about a phone call to walk thru this? If you are in the US.
I do not have the same screen. I have the dos window. See picture.
1. Type cmd in windows search bar
2. Right-click on Command Prompt at top of menu
3. Left-click on Run as administrator
4. Click "Yes" when prompted by User Account Control
5. This will open the command prompt where you can type the command
Were you able to view the video that i posted a link for? It should have shown how to use the command prompt in admin mode.
it said access is denied. I have no idea in dos how to change to adminstrator access. Gary
I was on my phone when I sent the last post, but it messed up the formatting of the command. I kept trying to edit it and repost, but it got worse. I finally used my computer and was able to get it to post correctly.
Please read the previous post above for my repost. It has all the details and the correct command.
Here is a video explaining how to run command prompt as admin
not sure how to run at administrator. I haven't used dos in a couple of decades. Gary
This command does not work. It says it could not find the host. I typed in:
ping 192.168.50.98. -t c:\pingtest.txt
As an alternate, use the command below to redirect the ping messages to a file that you can inspect later. If you do it this way, you won't have to stare at the screen watching the ping messages (which may not even look like they are updating over a period of time - but they are).
First, you must run command prompt as admin (so you can save to root of c). This will allow you to record the ping test to a text file for later viewing or so you can upload here for inspection.
While running command prompt as admin, type this at command prompt, then press enter.
ping 192.168.50.98 -t >> c:\pingtest.txt
(There are single spaces between the different parts (where you see gaps) of this command, make sure you use single spaces to separate the parts).
After 5-10 minutes, use Ctrl+C (with command prompt window active) to stop the ping test. Then goto your C drive root directory and open the pingtest.txt file to view it. A 10 minute run should create a file about 30K in size and have about 700 ping responses.
Run as admin
