Problem:

In the Visual COBOL documentation it shows a sample command line for installing Safenet licenses using the CesAdminTool as follows:

     start /wait\bin\cesadmintool –term activate AuthorizationCode

However, when the following is run placing quotes around the command name because of spaces in the folder name an error occurs:

     start /wait "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SafeNet Sentinel\Sentinel RMS License Manager\WinNT\cesadmintool" -term activate 1234567890123456

What is the correct command line to use to install a Safenet license from the command line?

Resolution:

It seems that the problem occurs because the start command expects there to be a title parameter present when starting it this way. 

Placing a dummy title in the command line as follows will fix the problem:

   start /wait "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SafeNet Sentinel\Sentinel RMS License Manager\WinNT\cesadmintool" -term activate 1234567890123456
