Somehow Auto completion stops working in command prompt in windows XP. Then I google about this error and found the solution
I just follow the follwoing steps and now its working fine.

  • Go to Start -> Run, type regedit
  • Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor
  • On the right, double-click on the "CompletionChar", type 9 and press OK.
  • On the right, double-click on the "PathCompletionChar", type 9 and press OK.

If there are no entries like CompletionChar or PathCompletionChar in Commnad Processor Folder then you can add them as string values.
