Assuming you have installed VeraCrypt in the default location, using the command line as Administrator, type the following including the double quotes:

"C:\Program Files\VeraCrypt\VeraCrypt Format.exe" /noisocheck

The reason you have to use the double quotes is if a space exists in the directory or file name.

You might want to check that your keyboard mappings are working correctly by typing the password in Notepad. Some users have somehow changed their language settings or keyboard mapping which was causing the failure to get their password correct.
