    Unhappy C source poblem

    Hi there!
    I have a dell computer and I want to change the tag service number.

    I tried the old solution with svctag.exe in windows, but it seems not to be running with my dell type, 0ptiplex 755.
    So i decided to try in Linux. I put Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit edition on the machine and I compiled the dell_service_tag.c source with $ make command. Now i have the executable dell_service_tag file.

    The problem is that nothing happens when I try to use it...actually the only thing I received in command line is:
    bash: dell_service_tag: command not found

    Can anybody tell me where I am wrong? Why it does not working?

    I attached the source file and the makefile.

    Thank you

    To run a file in the current directory you have to type ./<name> (ie ./dell_service_tag in your case)

    <name> alone will only run the program if it is in the current path. This is a security feature.

    Thank you, this was the problem.
