Running a program from a Flash Drive using Command Prompt


I ordered the Vista x64 Recovery file and burned a recovery disc. I need to run a computer scanning program that is located on a flash drive through the System Recovery command prompt option. However, since the System Recovery environment is in Linux, I don't know how to run this program through the Command prompt. I have included the instructions I need to perform below (for use with teh original Vista recovery disc), any help you would be able to provide me to translate it to the Linux version of the command prompt would be much appreciated, thanks.

-Select Command Prompt
-In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
-The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
-Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
-In the command window type e:\frst.exe (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter
-Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
-The tool will start to run.
-When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
-Press Scan button. -It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive.

There is no way to run a Windows based program from the Linux Command Prompt. You will have to contact and see if they can send you the WinPE version of the software to do what you need or you will have to get the Windows Based Recovery software to do what you need. You cant do it from our EasyRE software.
