With TrueCrypt I opened in the past an existing TC container from command line with the following command:

"D:\security\crypt\TrueCrypt\TrueCrypt" /v "D:\private\Docs\prv.tc" /lY /a /q /m rm /m ts

Now I wanted to try it out with VeraCrypt and entered:

"D:\security\crypt\VeraCrypt\VeraCrypt" /tc /v "D:\private\Docs\prv.tc" /lY /a /q /m rm /m ts

However I am getting on 64bit Win 7 an error popup:

"Error while parsing command line"

So whats wrong? Even if I omit the /tc parameter I get the same error.

Hello Peter,

Starting with 1.12 version of VeraCrypt the command line has been made more strict and robust.

You need to have a space between option and variable. In your case, /l Y instead of /lY
