Error Message :
Application return code = 1

When running a utility from command line, it fails with the error "Applicatino return code = 1". Logs will only contain the utility's .ini but do not provide any further details.
OS Version: N/A
Cause type:
Root Cause: The program is failing due to incorrect start parameters.
The utility is failing due to incorrect start parameters, and likely the hyphen characters, "-" are incorrect if the command was copied and pasted at any point.

Copying and pasting causes the hyphens to get confused between hard and soft hyphens, and deleting and then manually typing in the hyphens will solve the issue.
