Hi All,

There are commands listed here: http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials/Ins... for configuring the ROS. I entered the commands but I keep getting these errors:

C:\Users\Aleem>$ mkdir -p ~/catkin_ws/src '$' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

C:\Users\Aleem>$ cd ~/catkin_ws/ '$' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

C:\Users\Aleem>$ catkin_make '$' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong.

Also I would like some general help for Noetic as there doesn't seem to be any help for this version

Thanks in Advance.

'$' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

$ isn't a command; it's often the last character of a linux shell prompt. Some instructions include $ to signal that it's a line meant to be pasted into a shell, but the $ itself should not be copied. Your prompt ends in >.

C:\Users\Aleem>

Those instructions are using Linux commands, and the probably assume you've installed ROS on an Ubuntu system. Your prompt looks like a Windows prompt. Use these instructions for installing ROS 1 on windows: http://wiki.ros.org/Installation/Windows . There is more info about ROS 1 on Windows here: https://ms-iot.github.io/ROSOnWindows...
