I don't think you can run a BIN from DOS.

Better question: what are you trying to do / hoping to achieve?

.bin used to be what is call binary files. That only means that it is not readable to some extent. What dos used to do was use a program bin2exe. to convert bin files. Think there was a bin to com deal or maybe bin were com if you added something. It has been a long time on that.

Could it be that this file is called from some other file or a linux version of the program?

The way I see it, is that any file that is "executable" (runs when double clicked on) will also run from XP command prompt. Examples would be .exe .bat .mp3 .avi etc.

When you double click a .bin file it doesn't run so you can't do it from a DOS command line either. A bin file is rather like an image file and contains CD raw data. It therefore requires a special program in order to run it - such as BCDW, from what you said.

The same would apply, for example, to a .dll file. They are only opened by programs not command prompt because they don't "stand alone".

From a general standpoint, the mechanism in command prompt is to first put the name of an appropriate program file, one space, then the bin file. The specified program would then run the file.

The programming forum would be the best place to ask how programs call up files.

I'm not sure how that would solve the command prompt issue tho because command prompt options are quite limited.
