Client 2 SP1 for Windows - /NCPF option can't find file

On Windows 7 x64 Enterprise, trying to create an unattended install of the client:

I have followed the instructions for creating the NovellClientProperties.txt file and it is in the same directory as the setup.exe, but it says it cannot find the file when I use the /NCPF option. I have tried the default /NCPF and the /NCPF:<FilenameHere> option with no luck. It always says it cannot find the file.

Anyone had any luck using this option?

You can always put the file name in the Install.INI file. That's what I've been testing and it works OK. The entry is as follows:

; NovellClientPropertiesFile=
; Use a Novell Client Properties file (created by NCIman.exe)
; This must be a file name only. Paths are not allowed
;
NovellClientPropertiesFile=Unattend.Txt

So far, so good.

Sorry for the false alarm!

Well it turns out that thanks to Windows defaulting to hiding extentsions, I had the file name as NovellClientProperties.txt.txt! I renamed it with just 1 .txt and it worked fine. Thank you for replying!
