Command Prompt Know-Hows

If you want tools like 'GACUTIL' and 'STSADM' available everywhere inside your command prompt, then do the following:

  1. Add the path in which the tool resides to the enviroment variables of your computer.
    (You can find them via: Computer Properties --> Advanced --> Enviroment Variables --> System Variables and then in the list choose 'Path')
  2. Add the new directory to the 'Path' property and seperate different paths with a semicolon.
  3. Now your tool is available on every command prompt starting point.
