Default PING.EXE: message - "Cannot be run in DOS mode"

Thanks very much André! I created another short cut PIF to DOS (from
the Default). Next, right clicked on it - went to the Program tab,
clicked on the Advanced button. The problem was, as I am a DOS kind'a
guy (run lots of cool old DOS games, etc., I usually have the "Prevent
MS-DOS based programs from detecting windows" boxed checked.

But... since odd little PING.EXE is essentially an MS DOS based
program that must be about to detect Windows... it cannot run.
Interesting circular logic problem. Hmmmm. Unchecking the box and
Poof, Ping is Perfecto!

Thanks Soooooooooooooooooooooooo much for the cure. I own you a beer
or whatever it is you like to drink sometime!

All the best.
