Customer tries to deploy a new Azure APS instance. During the endpoint deployment procedure, invocation of script install.bat ends with the following error message:

The system cannot find the file specified.


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

As the result, endpoint deployment is not finished.


The following special characters are not escaped in password parameters that are passed to install.bat script, thus interpreted by cmd as commands: &, <. Exclamation mark is escaped correctly.


Install.bat requries three passwords - for database and SMTP users and for provider's account on Microsoft Portal. The only workaround available currently is to change these passwords to ones without special or command characters. Then restart install.bat with new parameters.
