Using the SDK on a Windows System
Opening a Folder
When you are using MS-DOS on a Windows system, you will have access to all of the folders you normally use in Windows. For example, if you have a Windows folder on your C: hard drive, the same folder is accessible as C:\Windows from an MS-DOS Prompt.
To open a folder in MS-DOS, type the command CD followed by the name of the folder and press Enter, such as this example:
The TEMP folder on your system's C: drive will be opened, if it exists. After you open a folder, your command line will be updated with the name of that folder, as shown below.
You also can use CD in other ways:

If you haven't created that folder yet, you can accomplish that task within MS-DOS.
