I have been trying to run Bitcoin Core with -zapwallettxes option by starting the command line prompt, and typing (cmd.exe) Start bitcoin-qt with --zapwallettxes=1 but it keeps saying Windows cannot find bitcoin-qt. I am trying to remove a stuck transaction and have the bitcoins back in my wallet. Any help would be much appreciated.
