...using the '-configuration' command line option.

Can somebody explain me exactly how to enter this command line? I suppose I need to navigate in DOS to the correct executable location, then type the name of the executable followed by '-configuration' then enter the new path? Thanks

I need to change the path where the workbench data is written. It's pointing to a network location that no longer exist. It seems from the error message that a command must be entered like probably:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe Experience Manager Forms Workbench\workbench\workbench.exe /configuration (then the new path??).

Basically just how to change the configuration area path. The previous location is no longer available. Apparently it cannot be changed through the menus, a DOS command must be run using the '-configuration' command line option. I spent a lot of time googling and searching this forum before posting. Thanks

Ok, I work in a big company and we have roaming network profiles (folder redirection). I don't know why but when the program was installed, the save location was set on the network profile. We have a 100mb limit on our network profile and that limit is reached very soon. I asked to have my network profile cancelled and I thought AEM would automatically ask me for a new place to write. It only gave me this error message, asking to use the '-configuration' command line option. I only want to know the correct way to use this command. Thanks
