Net Use Command Says "Invalid Command"

Added 05/03/02  - Article ID#: K000041


The "NET VIEW" or "NET USE" may display:

   Invalid Command


   "NET" is not recognized as an internal or external command

This usually indicates that the workstation cannot find the Net.EXE program.  Net.exe is provided by Microsoft on Windows 95/98/ME in the \Windows folder.  On Windows 2000 the program is in the \WINNT\System32 folder and on Windows XP it resides in the \Windows\System32 folder.  If Net.exe does not exist, put a copy of NET.EXE and NET.HLP in the correct folder.

It is also possible that NET.EXE exists in the correct folder, but the workstation has lost the path to this folder.  For example, if at the F:\RDP prompt, a path must exist to C:\Windows on Win95/98/ME computers, C:\WINNT\System32 on Win2000 and C:\Windows\System32 on Windows XP.
