Pinned topic Installation ReqPro on Win 7 with Command Line failed - Important

‏2012-12-19T17:26:08Z |
I am in the folder where installc is located, then I run the following command in an CMD Prompt (as Administrator):

installc.exe input "i:\1_HQMR\Teams\RequisitePro\Win7\InstallReqPro.xml" –acceptLicense

Error Message:
Unknown Argument "?accept license"

if I run it without acceptLicense argument, the installer reminds to accept the license agreement by adding "-acceptLicense".

Then I add the accept License and use the same command as in first time(see top) and it works.

What is wrong here ?

Beforehand, I used -showProgress as an argument. Maybe my OS did not like it ?

    It could be that the dash, "-" in -acceptLicense is not really a dash. At one time some characters that looked like dashes got into the docs and copy/paste of these characters had some problems.

    If this is the problem, and if you did get it from the docs, leave a URL in a reply to get things corrected.

    Thank you - what do you mean with the docs in the phrase that I quoted ?
    Regarding URL do you mean that I have the installc.exe in the Internet and that I can send you an URL with the installc.path on my server ? I do not have it online, I have it on my local client .

    Now it seems to work: I inserted the parameter-dash manually and did not copy it from a Word-Document.

    Obviously , the MSWord dash and the CMD Dash are two different chars ??

    Right, the MSWord dash is not a normal dash. I bet you can fix the word document by deleting the dash and replacing it with a dash typed in from the keyboard.
