What path settings do you have? Go to "Start -> Settings -> Control Panel ->
System" and select the "Advanced" tab (This is on Windows 2000; it might be
somewhere else on NT 4.0 -- my memory of NT 4.0 is a little dim after a year
with Win2K :-) Then select "Environment Variables". There are two, one for
"All Users" and one for whatever user you happen to be logged on as when you
do this. If you're a stand-alone user on a workstation, you'll probably want
to do it for "All Users", but if you're a user on a networked workstation,
you might need to get someone with Administrator privileges to do this for
In any case, the variable you want to change is "path". Select "path" and
hit the "Edit" button. You will need to add whatever folder "check" resides
in to that path variable. Go to the end of the string and add a *semi-colon*
followed by the folder where "check" resides. Then hit the "OK" button,
which will save the new "path". Then hit "OK" to close out the next window
you get. You will get one more window; hit "OK" again.
If you're doing the "Rcmd" in a Command Prompt window, you will need to
close that window and open a new one to get the new definition of the
environment variable. As a check, type "set | more" in the Command Prompt
window. You will see the current definition of the "path" variable along
with all other variables that are defined.
