I've been roaming the internet for a day now and still I haven't found what I'm looking for: that is, a list of build-in line commands for the WinRE Command Prompt, which comes with any Windows 7 computer. In the "normal" command prompt in Windows 7, the command (C:\Windows\system32>)help generates a list of all build-in line commands. However, in the Command Prompt of the Window 7 repair disk (WinRE) the command HELP does not work. I've tried all sorts of other commands too, like LIST, /? , ?/, MAN(ual) , .... but nothing seems to generate a list of available line commands under the Windows Recovery Environment Command Prompt.

So, how can I know what the available commands are in WinRE? Is there anything, any means to determine the commands that are available? A website with a list of all commands, ... maybe, ... hopefully, ...

I've been surfing in the RAMDISK ( X:\ ) after having booted into WinRE, and I did find some commands like Dism.exe, and a few others but that was it; the build-in line commands I couldn't see.

All WindowsRE is just WinPE with the Recenv program in it... oh and it uses a winpeshl.ini and setup.exe, etc.

Are you in Windows or WinPE? In Windows you can run reagentc as administrator to view/change Winre options...
