Windows 7: set /p is not taking input from keyboard

That is not PowerShell. "set /p" is not a PowerShell command.
Good, then I don’t have to worry about power shell.

Thanks for your input, but the problem is related to "set /p" and in your script it remains the same. I will use the /I switch though.

I start to believe problem IS related to WM box and Ill have to wait until some real machines is deployed.

Thanks to all who have participated.

I tested my code thoroughly, and couldn't find any bugs in it. In what way isn't it working for you?

It's not a matter of whether the code is right or not. His original code works fine on my machine and should work on everyone else's as well. I believe the problem stems from him being in a virtual environment but I'm not sure why that changes anything.

zainka, did you install the Guest Additions in Virtual Box after you got the VM up and running? If not, or even if you did, I would try doing so again, just in case that somehow got screwed up.
