[osg-users] [build] Unreckognized Commands

This is not  really an OSG question rather a failing in your environment

The system is telling it cannot find an executable or run-able script called
'osgviewer' in the paths that you have set up

The simplest thing to do is open up a  cmd window. Then change your drive
and directory to the location where you built the osgviewer.exe and then
attempt to run the command from there

While in the command window you can also run 'Echo %PATH%' to print out what
your current search path is to the console window

Also see this on my forum it explains how Windows search for things

Subject: [osg-users] [build] Unreckognized Commands

I am currently using Windows XP, with Visual C++ 2008 Express edition.
Following the tutorials as best as I could, I Compiled and installed OSG
using Cmake 2.6. Everything Compiled, and I installed OSG (from Visual C++).
I then went to Autoexec (using sysedit and command line) and set my paths.
But here is my problem = command line does not recognize any of the osg

The message I receive is as follows: 'osgviewer' is not recognized as an
interal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I'm stumped right now, I just can't figure out what's going on.
