Re: [swish-e] err: Missing Parameter. Use –h for options. [Windows Vista]

Thank you, Peter.  

I am now working in command prompt and keep getting the following error message:

" '$' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

Do I need to create a make file first?  I have downloaded make 3.81; as suggested in the many forums I have since been through and will continue to pursue.

Thanks again for your help, I truly appreciate it.   I really want to understand this program  and make it work for my web application.

swish-e is not a GUI application. You run it from the Windows DOS (command) prompt.
