I have a possibly stupid question but I'm confused. It's probably something simple but I'm having a mental block . I have Vista Home Premium SP2 on my laptop and I can't seem to get Ping or ipconfig to work in the command prompt. I just get the "'ping' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file" message when trying to ping google. 'Ipconfig' gives the same message. 'Dir' works though.
I'm just wondering if it's something I'm doing wrong (like I've probably forgotten something important) or do they only work with the professional versions of windows.
I'm only asking because I find it useful to 'play around' with things I do at work to help me learn.
