I'm having an unanticipated problem with a new Vista Ultimate 64-bit installation. I built a new PC using an ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo MoBo, a Q9650 CPU, 8GB DDR2 RAM & a GeForce 8600GT video card.
I installed Vista from the original DVD, I then installed the MoBo & Video drivers from a CD. Next, I installed SP1 from a flash drive. I let windows install the rest of the updates from the Windows update site.
I then instaled WinRAR from a flash drive. I started noticing that I was getting an error dialog from "jman" that says:
" Command line option syntax error. Type Command /? for Help." in multiple (3-4 each time) dialog boxes every time I right-clicked on an icon or a diretcory or a file in explorer or quick launch. I'm not saying the error message began when I installed WinRAR, I'm only saying I noticed it then.
I wanted an image, so I installed Acronis True Image and made a backup.
I googled the error message and saw references to Office 2000 & Norton 2005. Microsoft's advice is: "
To work around this problem, modify the source path so that it does not contain any spaces.".
I can't modify the source path because every time I try to access properties, I get the error messages.
This doesn't make sense to me which is why I mentioned that I installed some apps from a flash drive which probably contained some spaces.
