Error: Setup for TrueTeX is terminated because of invalid arguments
Version: 3.x, 4.x & 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word
During installation, this warning message appears:
Command Line arguments were invalid: "-s"
The message is followed by a second message:
Exiting Application Setup (32-bit)
Both messages appear in front of a window that contains the text:
Too many command-line arguments!
If you continue the installation and then later try to compile a document with LaTeX, a message appears that begins with this text:
Error 2 while attempting to execute.
The remainder of the message lists the location where the TrueTeX Formatter should be located and names the format file and the document being compiled.
The program installation automatically launches the TrueTeX installation, which normally runs silently behind the program installation. These warnings indicate that the TrueTeX installation has failed and you will not be able to compile documents.
The failure is caused by the use of a space in the name you chose for the program directory. TeX uses the space as a delimiter; therefore, it can't compile any file with a path that contains a space.
Install the product in a directory whose name doesn't contain spaces. The installation program defaults to correctly named directories.
