Strong SA Password (SAPWD)

HI All,

I want install the MSDE 2000, when I click the exe, I received the below message:-

"A strong SA password is required for security reasons.
Please us SAPWD switch to supply the same. Refer to redme
for more details. Setup will now exit."

I did type in a command in Windows Command:-

C:\ ...\> Setup.exe SAPWD = my_password

When I Enter, I see the below message box:-
=====================================
Windows Installer V3.01.4000 1830

msiexec /Option <Required Parameter> [Option Parameter]

....  

....


What does it mean?
