Sysinternals command line vanishes


I have Windows 10 Home, 64-bit, and have downloaded the entire SysinternalsSuite to my Downloads folder. Whenever I try to launch (as administrator) any executable which wants to open with Command Prompt, the box opens and closes immediately. No problem with opening a GUI type window (eg. procexp.exe or Autoruns). Same thing happens in Safe Mode. Is there something I can do to prevent the auto-closure of the Command Prompt box?


Check the properties on the shortcut. It may be pointing to a file or directory that doesn’t exist.


Are you just double-clicking on them? Try opening the command prompt, changing directories to wherever the tools are stored and then run them from there.
