I get the following error when I run from the command line

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

IMPORTANT: To use the command line successfully the operating system will need to know where exactly the application is located. Otherwise, you'll see the following error:

 We suggest you do one of the following:

A)    Set the path in your operating system's environment variables to the installation location of ConvertImage.EXE. See your operating system's help for setting the path.

B)    Create a batch file (a text file whose file name ends in .bat) that uses the fully qualified path of ConvertImage.EXE.

For example the following is a typical batch file:

"C:\Program Files\Softinterface, Inc\Convert Image\ConvertImage.EXE" /S "C:\In\Coffee.bmp" /T "C:\Out\Mocha.gif" /F2 /C4 /V


You may also be able to do something like this in a batch file:

set ConvertImage ="C:\Program Files\Softinterface, Inc\Convert Image\ConvertImage.EXE"

ConvertImage "C:\In\Coffee.bmp" /T "C:\Out\Mocha.gif" /F2 /C4 /V


One more possibility is to simply change the active folder before calling the application:

CD C:\Program Files\Softinterface, Inc\Convert Image

ConvertImage "C:\In\Coffee.bmp" /T "C:\Out\Mocha.gif" /F2 /C4 /V


Also, it is suggested you us fully qualified paths for any files you specify.

If you installed 'Convert Image' and accepted the default location, the call to the executable file will appear something like this, including the double quotes: "C:\Program Files\Softinterface, Inc\Convert Image \ConvertImage.exe". Command line switches data would then follow after the path to the executable.
