AOMEI Backupper Technician Plus ver 4.5.6 - command line backup not work even though reports success


I am trying backupper technician plus command line example:
AMBackup.exe /b new /t disk /s 1 /d "d:\disk" /n "Backup 1"

I am using the software as portable, so have copied it to a test PC (windows 10 x64):
Qt: Untested Windows version 6.2 detected!
AOMEI Backupper Command Line Prompt
Copyright (C) 2009-2018 AOMEI Tech.

[Total:100%, Sub:0%] [Backup is initializing...]
Backup file at: [ d:\disk\backup 1\ ].

The operation has been completed successfully.

However it returns within a second and no backup takes place. Can you tell me how it will work for portable?




  • OK I have found following which was required first:

    ABService.exe" -install

  • I had the 427 error using even though the service DID install:
    AbService.exe -install
    Scripting this, I had to issue this command to start it:
    net start "backupper service"
    At that point I use the ambackup command. Hope it saves someone a headache.
