Sorry. Here is what I see when I open a Command Prompt:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]
Copyright <c> 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Coskun>


When I run cmd.exe at this prompt, I see this:

C:\Users\Coskun>cmd.exe
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]
Copyright <c> 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Coskun>

It seems that all commands (latex, yap, etc.) I run here work. I type
exit twice: once to exit cmd and once again to close the Command
Prompt window.

Please let me know if more information would be helpful.

Best,
Coskun
