I have  a batch file with the following commands:

pause
ewfmgr c: -commitanddisable –live
pause

Open in new window


But when I execute it, for some reason it seems to translate the ewfmgr command to this (as seen on the command window, and obviously the command is not working)

ewfmgr c: -commitanddisable ûlive

Open in new window


Notice it is putting a u with (shift 6) character where the '-live' is supposed to be...Yes, I have tried typing the same exact line manually in a command window and it works just fine, only via the batch file does it seem to get messed up, any help?

What app are you using to create the batch file?  Use notepad not wordpad and copy and paste from the cmd line that works to notepad.

I personally prefer notepad2.  It also contains syntax highlighting and is freeware.
