When trying to change directory on command prompt i get error "the filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect" very strange as it IS a valid file path. i decided to do some testing and tried to change it to just "C:/" same stinking error! then i did the ultimate test and tried to "change" the directory to the directory it is currently in (C:\Windows\System32) and STILL GET THE ERROR, its NOT EVEN RECOGNIZING IT'S OWN HOME FREICKEN DIRECTORY!.

 

i have tried running command prompt BOTH as user AND as administrator, same symptoms. i wanted to get command prompt working to use some android abd commands, which requires directory change but now i think my whole command prompt is corrupt and wouldn't trust it. I've tried googling the problem and its often caused by long names and long directorys, both of which these are not. but saw nowhere on google saying someone cant access freaking "C".

 

ive changed dirrectorys in command prompt in past and never got that error. wish Microsoft didn't remove "open command prompt here" option.

if I remember correctly you don't need to type path just "CD c:"

At the command prompt type the following with no quotes.

cd D:\program files\android commander\bin

it shouldn't need the path command as CD means change directory so you making a redundant command with CD path c:

I must be asleep at the wheel, I do not recognize

prompt>cd path "[path & filename]" <enter>

as being a valid DOS command.

I've done the following:

c:\>cd windows <enter>

c:\windows>cd system32 <enter>

c:\windows\system32>cd\windows <enter>

c:\windows>

yeah I don't believe cd path is a valid command dos will look for a directory called path in the directory it is currently in

Make sure folder exist type Dir  "D:\program files\android commander\bin"  make sure D: letter is correct as programs usually install at "C:\Program Files"  folder. If folder exist then type Cd  /D  "D:\program files\android commander\bin command.
