using avrdude in CMD, how to set the system path as avrdude is not recognized..

The site where i am reading this is very old and outdated so i am assuming that the .cpp.elf is the same as .ino.elf

Somewhat fixed i had to point to the full path of the avrdude.exe
But now i get a new error

avrdude version 6.3, URL:

Fixed i installed winAVR so it added all the global permissions to the avr commands then ran

avr-objcopy.exe -I ihex -O binary Blink.ino.mega.hex firmware.bin


avr-objcopy.exe -I elf32-avr -O binary Blink.ino.elf firmware.bin

where firmware.bin is the file to be created.

You can also just specify the full path to a program to run it from wherever you like without having to add its location to the system path:
