Environment variables and environment path on SSD and HDD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was trying to run a CMD command because I had a BSOD and I wanted to view the .dmp, and it kept saying, "c:\program is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." I eventually found a program that can open a .dmp so that is no longer an issue, but this issue is a bit annoying now. I type in the path, any path, even in F: and it just comes back with the first word I typed and says that Windows is completely broken and there is no hope.

I looked online to see how to fix this and there were tutorials about environment variables and environment paths. The problem with me though is that I use an SSD and HDD and most of the solutions didn't seem to take into account different paths for different drives.

I have 3 sets of program files on my PC. I have Program Files and Program Files (x86) on my C: and then Program Files 2 on my F:. Some of the solutions to this problem were ridiculous. I even had someone suggest to nuke it and reinstall Windows. I am not reinstalling Windows because of this... lol. So could someone be very specific and hold my hand through the process? I am a hardware guy and software is a bit complicated to me.

P.S. if you need my system specs they are in my signature.

I saved my variables to a text file if that helps.

allvariables.txt 2k .txt file

Here is my DxDiag if that helps. People usually need this for some reason

How about posting the actual errors (screenshots) so we can see what you are doing, and what the response is?

Is there a reason you are specifically assigning "hard" paths instead of using the common system variables? Or was that part of your trouble shooting?

what happened to cause the issue to start happening? The BSOD you mentioned? Did the BSOD occur during a software install, or what?

Have your checked your registry for corruption?

I never messed with the variables. This is what it was from the start. Maybe I accidentally did something but I don't think I did.

The error was solved. It was a bad AMD file in the driver. I redownloaded Catalyst and it helped. But now I just want to fix this problem otherwise it is going to annoy me if I have to do any more CMD stuff in the future.

If you want the error then here it is
