Autoexec.bat file
I have tried to install an old DOS based program on my Vista based computer.
The program has installed on all previous versions of windows. All it did
was add the same two lines to my Autoexec.bat file every time I tried to
install it.

How can I delete these lines from my Autoexec.bat file?

I can go to the file, highlight the lines and delete them, but when I try to
close out, they all reappear.

Re: Autoexec.bat file

this is due to the security settings of vista.

what you can do is edit the file and save your edited copy to the
desktop or somewhere that you have permission to write to. then
manually move this file into the location that the autoexec.bat file is
(so that you're replacing the targeted file). it should ask you several
times if you're sure that you want to do this, but once you get through
it all those two lines should be deleted out of the file.

good luck!
