    Hi, im a noob, and I've been having troubles with my command prompt. Please, all help is welcome, thanks in advance.

    I had downloaded pwdump7 from openwall and extracted it, I have windows xp. Does it have to do with any system variables?


    I keep trying to invoke pwdump 7, with different combomations:
    'pwdump7' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
    and
    'pwdump.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
    and
    'pwdump7.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.


    Please help, thank you

    You have to use cd(change directory) to go to the folder where you have extracted the program and than run the .exe file you sipmly type the name of .exe file.

    There is another way around this,by changing the environment variables but I suggest you use the first method.I HOPE THIS HELPS

    For more help I suggest you read the documentation of the program.
