Getting a consistent failure on machines when attempting
to run the aspnet_setreg utility. The command line has
worked on one or two machines. Here is the command line
being used:
aspnet_setreg.exe -
u:"domain\account" -p:"password"

The error is: ERROR: Argument 1 Invalid:

I've tried creating the key manually ahead of time and
checking rights. Cannot find anything wrong. Windows
2000, SP4, Framework 1.1 (only).

Anybody else get this or know what the issue might be?
