Hi megaperl,

Can you type in “state” to see if the state tool recognized at all? It should show you a list of commands. If not I would try the installation process again after a fresh reboot and a fresh cmd.exe. I tried out the command you used again and had no issues, but that was windows 11. However, windows 10 should work just fine.

Please install the latest version by following the installation documentation here:
