12.1 Data2MEM - Running Data2MEM with a "." or "-" in the execution path causes "ERROR:Data2MEM:11"


When I run Data2MEM with a "." or "-" in the directory path, it results in the following error:

"ERROR:Data2MEM:11 - Unexpected symbol '-', 'a command switch' expected.
Line #1, File "cmdString""


Running Data2MEM does not work correctly with a period or a dash ("." or "-") in the directory path.This issue is seen in the Windows 7 OS.

To work around the issue, rename the project path to remove the period or dash, or copy the project to a directory that does not contain a period or a dash.
