Run stsadm.exe command from any command prompt

Posted in Sharepoint by Abhishek Bhowmick on September 26, 2008

Many a times people think of running stsadm.exe commands from any command prompt.  So here is the way:

•  Open command prompt
•  Type in the following command:  @set PATH=C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN;%PATH% 
•  You can now run the stsadm.exe commands from anywhere in the command prompt

    Hi Abhishek,

    when I run stsadm commands on the command prompt, it shows me “Access denied” . I tried with diffrent administrator accounts and all have farm administrator priviledges. I can’t figure out the reason.

    Could you help please?

      Right click on the command prompt and run as administrator while logged in with an administrator account.

    Right now it sounds like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on
    your blog?
