My Win 10 is not recognizing (only) the jmeter .bat & .cmd commands

Why my Win 10 is not recognizing jmeter .bat & .cmd commands -- jmeterw.cmd and jmeter.bat run just fine. But without the extension (jmeterw and jmeter) they will fail. I've never seen such problem before:

C:\>set PATH=D:\Programs\apache-jmeter-5.4\bin;%PATH%

C:\>where jmeter
D:\Programs\apache-jmeter-5.4\bin\jmeter.bat

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

C:\>where jmeter-no-no
INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).

C:\>where jmeterw
D:\Programs\apache-jmeter-5.4\bin\jmeterw.cmd

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

C:\>D:\Programs\apache-jmeter-5.4\bin\jmeterw.cmd
'jmeter' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\>jmeterw.cmd
'jmeter' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\>jmeter.bat
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx512M
...

C:\>set pathext
PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH;.MSC

C:\>echo %pathext%
.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH;.MSC


C:\>ver
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19041.630]

Everything works just fine in my another old machine, and I can't tell the differences between the two except the Windows version.

UPDATE:

@Compo, my %PATHEXT% variable is unlike the cause as this is a brand new machine provided by our IT department, neither them nor I would fiddle that. On the same machine other .bat/.cmd command works just fine. Only those jmeter ones are problematic.

what it looks like when transferred by you into your question area and formatted, does not prove to me that your semicolons and periods are the correct characters, they just look like them.

They are good. To ensure you, I've verified with my hexdump -C from my WSL:

00000000  2e 43 4f 4d 3b 2e 45 58  45 3b 2e 42 41 54 3b 2e  |.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.|
00000010  43 4d 44 3b 2e 56 42 53  3b 2e 56 42 45 3b 2e 4a  |CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.J|
00000020  53 3b 2e 4a 53 45 3b 2e  57 53 46 3b 2e 57 53 48  |S;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH|
00000030  3b 2e 4d 53 43                                    |;.MSC|

$ echo '.;' | hexdump -C
00000000  2e 3b 0a                                          |.;.|
00000003

Anyway, I've done the registry setting with the command you gave me,

enter image description here

and open a new cmd.exe instance for testing after having done that. But the problem remain exactly the same.

PS

On the same machine other .bat/.cmd command works just fine.

Just to illustrate that:

where kotlin
INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).

set PATH=C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\Kotlin\kotlinc\bin;%PATH%

C:\>where kotlin
C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\Kotlin\kotlinc\bin\kotlin
C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\Kotlin\kotlinc\bin\kotlin.bat

C:\>where kotlinc
C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\Kotlin\kotlinc\bin\kotlinc
C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\Kotlin\kotlinc\bin\kotlinc.bat

C:\>kotlinc
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xms512M -Xmx1g

. . .

Final UPDATE:

Found where the problem is:

copy D:\Programs\jmeter\bin\jmeter.bat C:\Temp

set PATH=C:\Temp;%PATH%

C:\>where jmeter
C:\Temp\jmeter.bat
D:\Programs\jmeter\bin\jmeter.bat

C:\>jmeter
The JMETER_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly
This environment variable is needed to run this program

C:\>D:\Programs\jmeter\bin\jmeter
'D:\Programs\jmeter\bin\jmeter' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\>C:\Temp\jmeter
The JMETER_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly
This environment variable is needed to run this program

BINGO! It runs from C: but not from D:. What's problem running from D:? The situation is, this is a brand new machine provided by our IT department which has only a single C: drive. I shrunk it and added D: drive myself. Never thought that would cause me trouble. How to solve it?

Any help appreciated.
