Error:
Argument syntax error:

 It indicates that your SCM Tool does not support  -W (--workitem) argument is for checkin subcommand.


You can run "scm ver" to find out the version of your SCM Tool.
I tested with RTC-I20140626-1252 and it does not support -W argument.
I have also tested with RTC-I20151109-2045 and it does support -W for checkin subcommand.

Please download SCM Tool for RTC 5.0.2 from the following page:
