  • Hi,

    Use -name and just enter the folder name of the feature or put quotes around the path when using -filename


    stsadm -o installfeature -filename "Mohawk.Portal.TimerJob.CARWF_Feature\Feature.xml "


    stsadm -o installfeature -name Mohawk.Portal.TimerJob.CARWF_Feature

    dos type commands can get confused when there are special characters or spaces in the path. Also if you add the path C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN to the path of your environment variables you wont have to type it in every time you want to run stsadm.

    Assumption the feature exists in the folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\Mohawk.Portal.TimerJob.CARWF_Feature
