Issue/Introduction

Example: running idflags.exe
Outcome: java help menu with full options available
Normally we should get an idflags error if idflags.exe had no options specified.

Resolution

Run CLI commands from

• On UNIX/Linux:
$IDASH_HOME/bin/


• On Windows:
%IDASH_HOME%\bin\

Explanation: When running CLI commands from another folder, we are not using the AdoptOpenJDK JRE 1.8.x (64-bit) bundled with the iDash CLI, instead, we are using system's Java which can be done after editing needed scripts but its not recommended by iDash support.

NOTE: JRE 1.8 (64-bit) bundled with the CLI may be found in:
 
• On UNIX/Linux:
$IDASH_HOME/jre/


• On Windows:
%IDASH_HOME%\jre1.8.0_181\
