getting error while running this script under Powershell :-

enter image description here

& '\.quickinstall.ps1 -license FILE -enable-discovery -enable-deployer -enable-preview -enable-session'

and actual command ran =>

PS C:\SDLWeb\cdinstall\resources\quickinstall> & '\.quickinstall.ps1 C:\Installation\SDL Web 8\VMSDLWEB8\cd_licenses -enable-discovery -enable-deployer -enable-preview -enable-session'

where file path => given the cd license path

    This actually seems as a documentation defect, as the sample is wrong - it should be & .\quickinstall.ps1 - the . and the `\` are reversed

Seems like a typo in the powershell script.

How about you separate out your powershell commmand like this:

.\quickinstall.ps1 -license 'C:\Installation\SDL Web 8\VMSDLWEB8\cd_licenses' -enable-discovery -enable-deployer -enable-preview -enable-session

For more details on what parameters can be passed read here: http://docs.sdl.com/LiveContent/content/en-US/SDL%20Web-v1/GUID-5A13B9C9-CB06-4847-BD0C-05F7AC37335C


What I can see it is a typo in the powershell. You have missed to put the


attribute before the FILE.

Here is the command for your reference -

& '.\quickinstall.ps1 -license FILE -enable-discovery -enable-deployer
-enable-preview -enable-session'

where FILE is the full path to, and filename of, your Content Delivery license file.
