in thread why doesn't my system('cls') work?

might want to check that.
the following outupt is from win xp
C:\WINDOWS>dir cmd.exe /s Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is 3833-835E Directory of C:\WINDOWS\system32 08/23/2001 04:00 AM 375,808 cmd.exe 1 File(s) 375,808 bytes
you may wany to double check your %PATH% and make sure the directory that contains your cmd.exe is in it.

    The poster stipulated there was no cls command... not no cmd command.
      sorry for misreading that, but we did fix OP's %PATH% problem.
      I concur with your analysis.
