how to invoke command line question

Short version: I am wondering about other options for command line than the windows "run environment"?

Details: So I see in the knowledge base that there is hope for us who like to use the command line. i.e. at this part of the knowedge base...

...there is this example command...

"C:\Program Files\WorldViz\Vizard30\bin\winviz.exe" "C:\" question is where do I type that command. I tried doing it to the one line python prompt (as a bonus if you could tell me how to make that more than one line that would be great) that is part of the standard Vizard IDE and it did not do the right thing.

I next tried it by going to

Start (at the bottom left of my windows screen) -> Run

At that run prompt I dropped the above text and got behavior that suggests that this is where I can write commands to a command line prompt.

My question is this: is there any other place I should know about where I can do command line arguments (sorry, I'm a microsoft newbie)

Hey, Bill,
I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly, but if you are new to Windows and are used to working in a command line setting like the Terminal in Linux, I think you are looking for the Command Prompt in Windows. You can access it via Start -> Run "cmd" or Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt. That will bring you to a DOS prompt and I think the directory defaults to your home folder (Documents and Settings). I hope that helps.

It sounds like maybe the path to the directory containing winviz.exe is not on your PATH environment variable?
