Do the following commands:

cd\
cd FAU
cd FAU.x86
dd.exe

(If same error occurs, use call dd.exe instead)

c:\dos
c:\dos\run
run\dos\run

lmao

Ahh....dos...I remember the good old days (and yes, I am old enough to remember dos). Technically dos doesn't exist anymore, it's just really a command prompt. Try right clicking on that file and see what options come up, you might be able to run it in compatibility mode.

Are you sure it's an exe file? Run dir to find out what the extension really is.
