Command line error "is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

Question

 

I receive the following error in the command line while trying to call CopyDocumentDefinition command:

'CopyDocumentDefinition' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

 

Answer

 

Any FCAdminTools command should be run under the FCAdminTools.exe application.

To do so, in command line change directory (cd) to one where FCAdminTools.exe is located - by default it is C:\Program Files\ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 Stations:

cd C:\Program Files\ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 Stations

And then run the CopyDocumentDefinition or any other command under FCAdminTools.exe:

FCAdminTools.exe CopyDocumentDefinition...



To simplify the process you can add ​C:\Program Files\ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 Stations to System Variables (path):

Goto:
------> Control Panel-> System-> Advanced System Settings->Environment Variables

In the System Variables Window, locate path and select edit

Now simply add C:\Program Files\ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 Stations to the System path:

​​​​

Save the changes and exit. You need to make sure that ANY cmd.exe windows you had open are then closed and re-opened to allow it to re-import the environment variables. Now you should be able to run FCAdminTools.exe from any path, within cmd.exe as the environment is aware of the path to it:
