Hi Steven,

Thanks for your reply,

Indeed, both files exist and in the correct path as indicated in the command line.
but what did you mean by running from IDE? Because we need an argument in the command line, so from the VS2005, I launch tools/VS2005 Command Prompt, and then type the same command line as before? And it'll yield the same resultat.

What could I do?

Many thanks,

I don't see anything obviously wrong, assuming that both files exist.
Do you get the same error if you try to run it from the IDE?
