    Because the file isn't an a executable folder, (e.g. env | grep PATH), its not able to to be executable globally.
    Try adding ./ in front of it, to use the current folder.
    root@bt:/pentest/passwords/chntpw# chntpw
    The program 'chntpw' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:
    apt-get install chntpw
    You will have to enable the component called 'universe'
    root@bt:/pentest/passwords/chntpw# ./chntpw

    I tried to reset my Windows 7 passwort today with Backtrack 5 R3.
    It's neither on the KDE 64 Bit ISO nor my installed KDE 64 Bit VMWare (updated) have chtnpw in /pentest/passwords/...

    Is there a reason it has been removed?
