Hi, I have Microsoft Windows 2000, DOS [Version 5.00.2195] Now my problem is: Like for example to run some java program, i have to type this at c:\ java -cp %classpath%;C:\LAX\DEVELOPER -Djava.rmi.server.codebase=file:///c:\LAX\DEVELOPER suncertify.db.RMIServer MyServer c:\LAX\DEVELOPER\suncertify\db\db.db But my DOS window doesn't allow me to type the whole thing. It starts yelling even before i get to type the entire command. Why? Earlier, till 2 months back, i could type the entire command and run my program. Thanks for the help. sri
DOS used to only allow 127 characters per line. But that limitation went away with Win9x.

Thanks guys, i think i figured out. I have windows 2000 OS. If i open DOS window from WINDOWS START-RUN- and type "Command",and press enter then a different version of DOS runs. And if i open DOS window from START-RUN-and type "cmd" and press enter, then the actual version of DOS runs. By actual version , i mean the version with NO problems, wherein i can type any number of command line characters, runs. Thanks to "cmd" But can someone please explain how come 2 versions exists. thanks guys, sri

I believe they kept the old version for "backward compatibility".
