Hello, when I try to use the command line interface for running the example file as directed in the command line interface documentation. I get the error:

D:>/path/to/openstudio.exe run -w /path/to/compact.osw The system cannot find the path specified.

I added the path as an environment variable.

Can you tell me please what is the reason for this error?

If openstudio.exe is in your PATH, then you can just do openstudio.exe run ....

To give the path to the OSW, either you give: * a full path (eg C:\path\to\compact.osw or perhaps C:/path/to/compact.osw), or, * a relative path given the current directory by using the ./ prefix ./path/to/compact.osw or omitting itpath/to/compact.osw.

If you pass /path/to/compact.osw it thinks of it as an absolute path (which would be valid on Unix, but not windows)
