"Check disk for errors " not working in Win 7

PortableApps.com Platform 2.0 (codename: Leo) Beta 5, Win 7 (64 bit).
I get a nastygram about chkdsk when I try to run 'check disk for errors'

Win 7 doesn't like any of the old DOS stuff. Is this related?

And here is my result

A DOS box pops up with:

Checking PortableApps.com (E:) for errors...

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

Press any key to continue . . .

lite?

If you're using one of those odd Windows lite builders, it won't work. That's one possibility.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Standard Windows 7

Standard Windows 7, 64 bit home premium version. I am not smart enough to modify the operating system.
