commandline tool

Hello
I've newly created an project and saved it.
Now, I've tried to generate data with the commandline-Tool. But I've got the following:

R:\_Temp\zempa\Redesign\TestData>"C:\Program Files\Red Gate\SQL Data Generator 1
\SQLDataGenerator" /argfile:R:\_Temp\zempa\Redesign\TestData\test.sqlgen
CommandLine V1.0.0.1022
==============================================================================

Error: Unrecognised XML document type (unrecognised root element): Project.
Please use SQLDataGenerator.exe /? or SQLDataGenerator.exe /verbose /? for more
information.


What have I done wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards
Aline

    Hello Aline,

    Thanks for your post. The reason for this error message is because you have an incorrect argument on the command line. /argfile: should actually be /project:

    For example:
    R:\_Temp\zempa\Redesign\TestData>"C:\Program Files\Red Gate\SQL Data Generator 1\SQLDataGenerator" /profile:R:\_Temp\zempa\Redesign\TestData\test.sqlgen

    The argument "/argfile:" is actually used for something else.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards

    Ben

    I think ben actually meant to write

    R:\_Temp\zempa\Redesign\TestData>"C:\Program Files\Red Gate\SQL Data Generator 1\SQLDataGenerator" /project:R:\_Temp\zempa\Redesign\TestData\test.sqlgen
