Install a Perimeter Server (PS) in SILENT mode on a Windows 2003 Server, but it fails with an "unknown option" error.
Install a PS in SILENT mode on a Windows 2003 Server with following command string :-
C:\"Program Files"\Java\jdk1.6.0_24\bin\java -Xmx512m -jar C:\PS\ps_4060401.jar -f C:\PS\SYSU_PS_DEV_01.silent
The installation fails with error message:

Diagnosing the problem
Cut and paste the command string into a hex editor.
Resolving the problem
