We have a custom submitter script which does all sorts of things. I finally had time and oppertunity to update RenderPal to the latest version,
but now our script won't work anymore ... I am getting the following error.

Code: Select all

===========================================================================
Connection established, submitting net job...

ERROR! Command-line error:
Unknown switch [switch=]

===========================================================================
Network: Disconnected from server
Network: [SERVER-DC01/manager.bf.local:7506] Disconnected (Logged off)
Logged off from server

ERROR! Job submission failed [code=7]:
The passed command-line is invalid or incomplete.

Configuration: C:\Program Files (x86)\RenderPal V2\CmdRC\RpRcCmd.conf

===========================================================================
Cleaning up...

Destroying remote controller core...
This is the commandline that's being passed

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files (x86)\RenderPal V2\CmdRC\rprccmd" -nj_renderer "3ds Max/3ds Max 2018" -nj_name "Ext 04 - Save File" -nj_tags "main;high" -nj_pools "Workstations;Chenbros;Blades - Gen 5;Blades - Gen 4;Dell CreoServers;Anima Proof" -importset "C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp/max_submit_tmp.rset" -nj_priority 7 -nj_splitmode 2,1 -nj_project "Test Project user" -frames 0 -fstep 1 -nj_color "220,230,240" -nj_preset "\\server\RP_Presets\MDK_maxExe.rnjprs" -outdir "Y:\Client\project\05 Renders\Impressies\Highres\" -outfile "Ext 04 - Save File_main.tif" "Y:\Client\project\03 Max\Scenes\Standpunten\Ext 04 - Save File\Ext 04 - Save File_RP.max" >> "C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp/max_submit_tmp.log"
any help would be GREATLY appreciated. We're dead in the water right now !

The problem most likely is the -outdir switch, as its value ends with a backslash. Remove that and it should work.

There were various changes to the command-line parser in the last few version, especially regarding support for passing double-quotes. This is just a side-effect of these changes.
