Hi sunsail. From the post, it looks like you're using the special angled (“ ”) double-quote characters instead of the normal (") ones. Try single-quotes for everythign instead.


Also, please use [code] tags around your command lines and log output.

Hi Otheus

it's strange because I copy these lines from notepad and when I copy them they return to doubleqoute chars
you are very careful,though

Kind Regards

There you go. Use single-quotes. Make sure when you paste that the quote marks are either straight up-and-down or always slanted to the left.
