    echo ZNOTEBOOKZ|findstr "ZBBBBBHORSEZ ZNNNNNDHORSEZ ZNOTEBOOKZ"

    This seems to work (i.e., returns ZNOTEBOOKZ) on Windows 2000 however, on
    Windows 2003 - it doesn't!

    Windows 2000 findstr version - 5.0.2147.1
    Windows 2003 findstr version - 5.2.3790.1830

    However...

    echo ZNOTEBOOKZ|findstr "ZBBBBBHORSEZ ZNNNZ ZNOTEBOOKZ"

    This works (i.e., returns ZNOTEBOOKZ) on both Windows 2000 and Windows 2003

    Is this a bug? It has broken one of our scripts!!!

    Findstr is a DOS command. WindowsXP is no longer DOS based.
    The Command Prompt (CMD) is a simulator and has had some
    changes within XP. See below.
