Default Securing connection strings

Is anyone familiar with this in Windows XP Pro?
I typed the following command line to encrypt a connection string in web.config:
aspnet_regiis -pef connectionStrings –app c:/MySiteFolder
When I press Enter and the message “aspnet_regiis.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.”
I have tried one other way to do this – but all I get is this message. Am I missing something?

You need to be in your framework directory for this command to work.

To get there goto Start --> Run --> cmd
Execute this command: cd %systemdrive%\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\<ver sion>

On my system the command looks like this for the 2.0 framework: cd C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727

Once you have navigated to this directory you will be able to execute the command from your post.
