Start>Run DOS box disappears


Hi, using Win2000, when I try to use DOS commands the black box with all the info appears for about a second then disappears. Any ideas why?

The reason for the "disappearing box" is either due to an incorrect DOS command or that the command has terminated normally after completion.

Use a DOS window CMD, then put the DOS commands in
