While trying to diagnose a problem over the phone I told the user to type out his autoexec.bat file.
He said it said, “File not found”.
I told him to do a dir.
I asked him if he saw autoexec.bat listed.
He said, “Well it says autoexec, then there’s some spaces, but no dot, and then it says bat.”
I said type this in “type autoexec.bat”.
Again he got “File not found”.
I asked him to tell me exactly what he typed.
He said, “I typed just what you told me: `type autoexecdotbat.’
