A few years back I made a couple of console command line apps which at the time worked with no issues. I'd place them in the window/system32 directory and be able to use them from the console prompt from anywhere on my system(Windows XP at that time).
Now I'm using Windows 7 64bit and this no longer works. I've tried placing my little console apps in
syswow64, Windows on down to the root of my c: drive, but windows continues to give me the same reply "'check' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
But! If I am within the same directory as the program it works as intended. I'm assuming there's either a 32bit/64bit app issue or OS internal security issue.
Can anyone point me in the right direction here? Do I need to create a directory in "Program Files(x86) and add that new directory to the PATH environment?
Additional Note: This is a program I created. It is not a batch file. The program does work as it should when you are in the same directory as the program while you are in a console window.
