    Is "pwd.exe" meant to be in: C:/Windows/System32 ?


    Hi,

    The "pwd" command is not recognized in my Windows 8.1 command prompt:
    'pwd' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    And its executable is missing from C:/Windows/System32. Should it be here?

    These are my PATH system variable's paths:
    • C:\WINDOWS;
    • C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;
    • C:\WINDOWS\system32;
    • C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;
    • C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\;
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\ATI.ACE\Core-Static;
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Windows Performance Toolkit\;
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\TypeScript\1.0\;
    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn\;
    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\120\Tools\Binn\;
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Lua\5.1;
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Lua\5.1\clibs;
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\LuaRocks\2.2;
    • %APPDATA%\LuaRocks\bin;
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\LuaRocks\systree\bin;

    pwd is a command in UNIX/LINUX and stand for: "Present Working Directory" and is not available in Windows. For Windows, Use "chdir" with no argument.
