#102 MSconfig not available with emerge shell


I recently tried to run emerge desktop as the default shell, however I noticed on startup it was not running the drivers for my touchpad (The touchpad is on a HP-G60 Notebook.) And so i attempted to run msconfig to see if i had accidently deselected it to run on startup as I had just been using msconfig.
For some reason or other MSCONFIG.exe was not in my C:\Windows\System32 Folder where it is under the normal shell, nor anywhere else I could find.

    Emerge Desktop is extremely powerful but it doesn't touch ANY system files :)

    msconfig.exe is not in C:\Windows\System32, it is in C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries
    But you can open it by simply typing msconfig on the Run dialog or in emergeCommand ;)

    I wouldn't have thought it would have touched system files, but my msconfig is definitely in C:\Windows\System32 while running the normal vista shell

    My PCHEALTH folder contains only another folder called ERRORREP which has two empty sub directories
    I tried to use run under the Emerge shell but it could not find msconfig at all. And when I attempted to browse to it or even use the search function it was nowhere to be seen. This only happens when running the emerge shell.

    Please pass by the Emerge Desktop forum to discuss this!

    I can't recreate the issue - I'm able to execute msconfig with no issues. Does this issue still occur?
