Okay, stupid newbie question (yeah, another one!)... :flowers: :trumpet:

I was trying to look-up my IP configuration in a command prompt as instructed on the ZA board, but I did it wrong... I was supposed to type "command" in the run box, THEN type in "ipconfig /all", but I just typed in "ipconfig /all" in the Run prompt... I tried this twice before realizing my mistake. Each time, I could see the DOS window pop up for half a second and then disappear, and then nothing.

Did I mess anything up by doing this?

Did it actually do anything? (I did see the DOS window flash open for a second...)

Thanks for the help! :thumbsup:

No you did not hurt anything. All you did was make a information request that could not be processed from the Run dialog box.
I alway just type cmd in the Run dialog box and ipconfig /all at the prompt in the command line window.

You can also go to Start > Run and type: cmd.exe /k ipconfig/ all
