Using CDiag Without Assistance

  1. Visually identify the CDiag Base Code (everything INSIDE the “#####” lines). Please DO NOT include ANY portion of the “#####” lines.
  2. Open Notepad.
  3. Highlight then Copy the code (Ctrl-C), precisely as it is presented, and Paste (Ctrl-V) into Notepad.
  4. Examine the contents of Notepad. Is the text, as copied, readable (similar in format to the Base Code)? It won’t run well, if it’s not easily readable.
  5. If the text is not easily read, then:
    • Close Notepad, as is (do not bother to save anything).
    • Open Notepad.
    • Under Format, change the setting for Word Wrap. If it is unchecked, check it. If checked, uncheck it.
    • Return to Step 3.
  6. Add the details for your LAN, giving the CDiag Assembled Code.
  7. Save the CDiag Assembled Code as “cdiag.cmd”, as type “All Files”, into the root folder “C:\”, onto each computer with an NT based OS (NT / 2000 / 2003 / XP) in your LAN. This is the part where I can’t help – you have to get the Assembled Code to each computer somehow. If file sharing worked, you could copy it across the LAN, but of course, you wouldn’t need CDiag then.
  8. Run the Assembled Code on each computer with an NT based OS (NT / 2000 / 2003 / XP).
    • Start – Run – “c:\cdiag”.
    • Wait patiently.
    • When Notepad opens up displaying the CDiag Log (c:\cdiag.txt), first check Format and ensure that Word Wrap is NOT checked! Then, print it, or set it aside, for interpretation.
  9. Aggregate all CDiag logs, then interpret the complete result.
