2008 web server command line


Has something changed in the command line on 2008 server?  I am trying to create an ssl certificate for my off site backup program and having trouble.  I am not very good with command line anyway, so I am copying things like for like from a set of instructions as I have for the last 3 years when renewing the cert.

The problem seems to be with the " quoatation marks, telling the command line program to run run a keytool programme in another directory.  See below and thanks in advance for any help you can give me :-).

Merry Christmas to you all

C:\Program Files\Ahsay Offsite Backup Server\conf> “C:\Program Files\Ahsay Offsite Backup
Server\java\bin\”keytool -delete -alias tomcat -keystore keystore

From the above the keystore file is in the conf folder and the keytool is in the java/bin folder.  I have tried run as administrator but it didn`t help.  The erro message I get is the filename, directory name or label syntax is incorrect.

Thanks for the reply.  I copy & pasted it from the software companies instructions into notepad and then again from there but no luck.  If i type it manually from my laptop I use the symbol on the number 2 key ( uk keyboard).

Any idea how i find standard quotes?
The closing quotation mark is in the wrong place ;) Should be after keytool.
Thanks Marek, but it isn`t that :-(
See chapter 14.1 in above attachment.
Even though I copied them from the ahsay instruction document it didn`t work, but I searched the internet and copy n pasted the left and right quote mark from a random example script.  It worked, even though they look identical.
