Hi Nguyen,

How do you try to start the cmd shell? Do you mean that you do "M-x cmd-shell"?

In that case please note that cmd-shell is not a command defined in
Emacs. It is defined in w32shell.el that comes with EmacsW32.

However it should work. It works for me. Can you turn on
debug-on-error and see if you can get a back trace with more

Could you also try just "M-x shell"?
