Unix commands 'dig' and 'nmap' work on WinXP installation

January 7, 2013 at 08:49:26
Specs: Windows XP Pro, 1.5GHz / 1GB
UNIX commands dig and nmap work perfectly on one Windows XP Pro installation but don't work on a new Windows XP Pro installation on the same computer (IBM Thinkpad R51 Intel 32bit

I copied the C:\Program Files\dig and C:\Program Files\nmap from the working installation and put them on the new installation and edited the My Computer >> Properties >> Advanced >> Env. Variables >> User Variables >> path to include

"C:\Program Files\Nmap;C:\Program Files\dig"

when I enter dig or nmap on "CMD", they don't work.

I made them work on another Windows XP Pro installation on another computer (IBM Thinkpad X41) so this method is basically working.

What could be reason it doesn't work on this computer and how to fix it?

I'd guess that you are missing a dll. But why on earth mess about like this? Just download the installation files for the programs and install them properly.

"What could be reason it doesn't work on this computer and how to fix it?"

Reason: you copied and didn't install, hence no registry entries
Soluiton: properly install the applications. These are not DOS days of copy and run.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Well, waste your time if you want to. It would take a couple of minutes to download the programs and install them; less time than we've spent discussing it here. But - hey - do it your way.
