Today even in the modern world of Windows Vista and other versions of windows we can step back to the early days of computing and gather information to help Kaspersky and other providers we Beta test software for.


With the help off DOS (Disk Operation System) and a few simple commands we can achieve a lot. If you do not know what you are doing, Yes you can seriously damage programs and make your windows system UnBootable,



For the most part it should not matter but please log on to windows

as Administrator.

This works for all versions of windows from Win98/Win98se/WinMe/Windows2000/WinXp/Vista


The steps are basically the same to launch a Command Prompt in all versions of Windows.


Version One

  1. Click on the "Start Button"
  2. Click on Run
  3. Type "CMD" in the box and click ok

Version Two

  1. Click on "Start Button"
  2. Click on |>All Programs
  3. Click on |>Accessories
  4. Click on |>Command Prompt

You may see different drive letters in the CMD window other than C:\

This will depending how your machine is setup, and will depend on how many drives you have installed.

What you see in the black CMD box will also vary depending on which version of windows you are using.

"C:\Users\"username">" "C:\Documents snd Settings\"Username">"


A few simple dos commmands that we will use are :

CD = Change Directory

Dir = Directory Listing

These commands can take switches to alter what the outcome is

"Dir /s/w/p" Stands for Directory with every /Subdirectory/Wideformat

now if we string these commands together we can do alot.


Step One :

Run your Command Prompt.

"With Vista right click the Command Prompt icon in the menu

and select run as Administrator"


Step Two :

Type with out the quotes

"CD \" = ChangeDirectory and \ = the root of the drive.


Step Three :

Type without the quotes "Dir *.log /s/w >dir.txt"

"Dir *.log /s/w >dir.txt" = Directory with *= ("Wildcard = everything") (".log"Log files /S = every subdirectory /W = wide and ">" put it in a file named "dir.txt"


Step Four :

Type withouot the quotes

"notepad dir.txt" = Lanuch "Notepad" with the file "dir.txt"


Step Five :

Click back on the Dos Prompt box CMD window and type without the quotes

"Exit" before hitting Enter it should look like the window below.



You can now send this directory listing to who ever you are testing software for.
