I installed the Windows telnet client (
telnet.exe) on Windows 8 Enterprise Edition (RTM - fresh install) via Turn Windows features on or off. However I can't seem to launch it from an Administrator command prompt.
I did a full search of the
C: drive and can see the executable residing in
I can also see the executable in explorer:
In both of the above cases I can launch the client by double clicking but for some reason it's not visible in my Administrator
cmd.exe command prompt (or PowerShell for that matter):
Also, as you can see in the above screenshot,
C:\Windows\system32 is present and correct in my
PATH environment variable. Other system executables launch just fine (
tasklist.exe for example).
For reasons that are too long winded to explain I can't use a third party telnet client such as PuTTY.
Can anyone shed any light on why this is happening?
I also tried a reboot but that's not helped either.
