Please note that if you do not have the path already referred to Drive:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ folder, you might get error in the command prompt. So make sure that you are into above directory and run the command.

The last folder, version number may vary based on your the .NET version installed on your system.
