Because it's newer and hopefully has fewer bugs, I'd like to run
chkdsk.exe not from my Windows XP, but from the Windows 7 DVD. While I could simply boot from it, copying it to the hard drive would allow me to use the PC while
chkdsk.exe is running.
The more important consideration, however, is that it gives
error 50 saying it was
unable to write the log file, when it is run from repair mode. So the questions are:
How do I extract
chkdsk.exefrom the Windows 7 DVD?
Update: extracted with 7z from install.wim.
chkdsk.exefrom Windows 7 work well on Windows XP?
Update: upon running it says it's not a valid win32 app. And it prints "Access is denied." to cmd line.
