Error when use the bfexport utility

Juan Revuelta (5135) | asked Jul 13 '12, 3:24 p.m.
I am trying to export a project using the bfexport utility but I receive an error and the operation is not executed. I look at the error but I have no success.

"C:\Program Files\IBM\Build Forge>bfexport -f Instala Cuotas Nuevas Instalaciones
 de Servidores.xml 936ec8870c571000ec1f4585677a677a

t to mail server: Unknown error"

Aparently is some kind of problem with the database because the main error points to a record that in fact does not exist.

Please any help will be very appreciate.

 in the error message it indicates that the record being selected is "Cuotas".  If you look at your commandline that is the clue to the problem.  The windows command interpreter is (as it should) parsing the spaces as separators of your commandline args.  Clearly you want the file to be one arg, and the UUID to be the other one.  I suggest either renaming your export file so that it doesn't have spaces in the name, or enclosing it's name in doublequotes.
