In the C:\mqWinInstall directory, I have the .class that I want to run and a bat file which reads as follows:

When I run the batch file, I receive an error message:

C:\mqWinInstall>C:\mqWinInstall\jre\bin\java.exe -classpath="C:\mqWinInstall"
Unrecognized option: -classpath=C:\mqWinInstall
Could not create the Java virtual machine.

why is -classpath an unrecognized option?
