Cannot run exmerge automatically

Hello,

I have used exmerge in my exchange server 2003 to export PST files with the GUI. Now i'm trying to schedule exmerge to run automatically. I used the steps in this url  "http://exchangeserverinfo.com/2007/05/03/how-to-run-autoschedule-for-exmerge-utility.aspx" to setup what I wanted to do. Now when I run the batch file it just opens the wizard. Any idea what would cause the wizard to open when -b is supposed to skip it?

Thank you

Try doing the -b outside inverted commers  it works for me
for eg
"C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\ExMerge.exe" -b

That doesn't change anything. Here are the steps I have taken.
1. I created a folder C:\Exmerge
2. From C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\ I copied ExMerge.exe and exchmem.dll to C:\Exmerge
3. I ran C:\Exmerge\ExMerge.exe
4. I selected all the options to export every mailbox to PST and checked include dumpster items.
5. I saved the settings and clicked on cancel
At this point I noticed that the mailboxes.txt was not created. I have gone through this process a couple of times and I can't seem to find out how I got it to populate the mailboxes.txt file before.
6. I modified the exmerge.ini file to FilecontaininglistofMailboxes=C:\Exmerge\mailboxes.txt
7. Then I ran "C:\exmerge\exmerge" b f exmerge.ini with and without the quotes.

Every time I run this, the wizard pops up. I need to have this run without user interaction. Thank you for any help you can provide.

I got it to work. instead of C:\exmerge\exmerge" -b -f exmerge.ini  I used exmerge -f exmerge.ini -b without a full filepath and I switched the -b and -f.
