Windows uses /param syntax for CL arguments, not --param

edit: this may actually be subverted by gflags, can't test

spring -help cannot return anything on the command line since spring is not a console application.
spring -help > out.txt


tulipe (reporter)

Less than an hour ago, I tried ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Spring\spring.exe /help"" and ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Spring\spring.exe" -help > out.txt" and it returned nothing in POWERSHELL console.


hokomoko (developer)

Of course, because it puts the content in the file out.txt


tulipe (reporter)

And where is this out.txt file? I didn't find it with a search from C:\.

"& '.\Program Files (x86)\Spring\spring.exe' /help" instead ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Spring\spring.exe /help"" with a POWERSHELL console.
and & '.\Program Files (x86)\Spring\spring.exe' -help > out.txt instead ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Spring\spring.exe" -help > out.txt".

in the folder you ran from, if you have permissions in this folder, that is.
If you want the file to appear in a specific location, put the entire path
C:\Program Files (x86)\Spring\spring.exe -help > C:\path\to\file.txt


tulipe (reporter)

I tried "& '.\Program Files (x86)\Spring\spring.exe' -help > C:\out.txt" and I find "out.txt" in "C:\", but no text in out.txt.


hokomoko (developer)

for some reason that doesn't work in powershell.
use cmd


tulipe (reporter)

I tried too from cmd.exe. File "out.txt" was created but still empty.


hokomoko (developer)

I'm outta ideas


tulipe (reporter)

I remenber with at least one previous version of spring, it worked, some years ago.
Maybe with but I don't find 0.80 version on https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/default/maintenance/
One subject on springrts forum about commandline options : https://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=586104#p586104.


silentwings (reporter)

Fyi in my post there I used the Ubuntu app (-> linux subsystem) on Windows 10. I didn't try powershell or cmd, and I wonder if it's important to use --help instead of -help.


tulipe (reporter)

In the "out.txt.." screenshots pictures I posted this subject 0005999, I didn't saw I captured my taskbar too. Could you delete theses "ou.txt..." pictures please? Sorry that 2 "out.txt" pictures were posted too, but I thinked none was sended cause I had a mantis message : you reached max number of messages, or a message like this, and I thinked pictures were not sended.
I didn't find an option to delete theses pictures from my account settings.
I tried send a message to no-reply@springrts.com but I had a message that my message was not send to no-reply@springrts.com.


tulipe (reporter)

("I remenber with at least one previous version of spring, it worked, some years ago." This should have worked with LINUX and not with WINDOWS (and not spring.exe but executable for linux))


FLOZi (reporter)

I updated the wiki page for 104.0 so it worked for me; https://springrts.com/wiki/Help:CommandLineArgs


FLOZi (reporter)

Can't edit notes; I'm on Windows but still Win 7, not 10

Kloot (developer)

@tulipe please test https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/default/maintenance/104.0.1-552-g1c78b40/win32/spring_{maintenance}104.0.1-552-g1c78b40_win32.exe


tulipe (reporter)

I tested less than 2 hours ago "spring.exe -h > out.txt" with https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/default/maintenance/104.0.1-552-g1c78b40/win32/spring_%7bmaintenance%7d104.0.1-552-g1c78b40_win32_portable.7z, and https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/default/maintenance/104.0.1-552-g1c78b40/win32/spring_%7bmaintenance%7d104.0.1-552-g1c78b40_win32.exe.
out.txt was created but no text was readable in out.txt.

Less than a few days ago I tested with spring 103 and it worked. (text was readable in the txt file).

Since my declaration of 6 june 2018 "Maybe with but I don't find 0.80 version on https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/default/maintenance/" I found at least one older version of spring than those visible on page https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/default/maintenance/. (I found on github and a SPRINGRTS forum page).
