Azure AKS Error: Az aks Can not find kubectl executable in PATH

This week when I was testing the new Azure AKS Service I received the error below when I was trying to run an Azure Kubernetes AZ AKS command in Azure CLI 2.0.

Error message:

You get the message below when you are trying to run Azure AKS command and connect to Azure Kubernetes Service.

aks Can not find kubectl executable in PATH


To fix the problem, the command from C:\Program Files (x86) path using the line below:

Cd 'c:\program files (x86)'

Once done, Az AKS commands should work without any issue.
