Hi,
sorry for my poor English

I noticed that KeePass cannot open database from command line if it has a password that contains following characters: % "

I tried to enter my password like this (in quotation marks):

KeePass.exe mybase.kdbx -pw:"test%pass123"

but it did not help me to solve the problem.
OS Windows XP SP3

Thanks!

    Works for me using either of these command lines on Win7.
    KeePass.exe mybase.kdbx -pw:test%pass123
    KeePass.exe mybase.kdbx -pw:"test%pass123"

    Try it without the quotes, or try escaping the % with a caret (shift 6).

    cheers, Paul

    Oops, I haven't tested it on Windows 7. I think this topic can now be closed.

    cheers, Anatoly
