MS Setup Disklay2 Utility Calls COMPRESS.EXE Internally


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows version 3.1
  • Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit (SDK), versions 3.1, 3.5, 3.51, 4.0


The Disklay2 utility that comes with the Microsoft Setup Toolkit calls the COMPRESS.EXE application internally to compress files. If this utility cannot be found during the execution of Disklay2, the infamous "Bad Command or Filename" error results. The screen dump of the results of Disklay2's progress will contain this error message. The solution is to ensure COMPRESS.EXE is available in the path.

COMPRESS.EXE is a component of the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK).
