Issue

If I try to run an Execute Command Line step in a robot running on RoboServer I receive an error message like:

Error from the Execute Command Line action. Cannot run program "cmd.exe": Malformed argument has embedded quote: MOVE /y "C:\temp\testfile.txt" "\\localhost\Share\\test.txt"

Solution

This error can be solved by adding the following line to the RoboServer.conf file in the bin folder of the RPA installation.

wrapper.java.additional.20=-Djdk.lang.Process.allowAmbiguousCommands=true

Afterwards the Roboserver needs to be restarted.
