Facing java.io.FileNotFoundException when run katalon CLI

I run Katalon CLI as below

/Katalon/katalon.exe -noSplash -runMode=“console” -retry=0 -testSuiteCollectionPath=“Test Suites\Collection2” -projectPath="/Test_Automation/UI/GUIAutomation.prj" -browserType=“Chrome” -retryFailedTestCases=False -consoleLog

But I always get exceptions as below. Any hints?

Project ‘GUIAutomation’ opened

What was the current working directory? You can get it using the command pwd.

I found the problem. I run Katalon CLI on Windows. It works if I change to -projectPath=“C:\Test_Automation\UI\GUIAutomation.prj”. But the UNIX style path works for CLI below to run test suite instead of test suite collection
/Katalon/katalon.exe -noSplash -runMode=“console” -retry=0 -testSuitePath=“Test Suites\2” -projectPath="/Test_Automation/UI/GUIAutomation.prj" -browserType=“Chrome” -retryFailedTestCases=False -consoleLog

It seems there is some inconsistency in path style support of Katalon’s internal implementation.

Thank you for the information. The projectPath is a file system path for Katalon to open the project, and the use of / or \ is dictated by the OS. Other paths are actually IDs (which are unfortunately called “path”) of elements inside that project and the use of / is required.
