Wrong parameter format

Hello

I'm sorry to be bringing this issue up again, but my Videos library is hidden, and when I tried copying and pasting the commands into the elevated command prompt I received "Wrong parameter format" instead.

Does this have anything to do with the OS that I'm running, or is it just a bug?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Dawn, and welcome to Seven Forums.

That error usually indicates a mistake made in the typing of the command. Try copying and pasting the command for Videos from below instead to see if you get the same error.

ATTRIB -H %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries\Videos.library-ms /S /D

Thank you for the welcome.

I tried copying and pasting the command, but I got the same error. It still says "Parameter format not correct"

Strange. Could you post a screenshot of your Libraries window and in the Videos library to see if something may standout?

Are you able to open the Videos library?

I am able to open the Videos library, if I select "show hidden icons" under the Control Panel.

With "Don't show hidden icons" selected:
-hide-icons.jpg
With "Show hidden icons" selected:
-show-icons.jpg
The videos library:
-library.jpg

Thanks.

Hmmm, I'm just not sure why you would be getting a "Parameter format not correct" error unless there was a mistake in the way it was typed or entered in the command prompt.

Try copying and pasting this command to see if it may help.

Code:
 
ATTRIB -R -H -S %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries\Videos.library-ms /S /D

It's ok, I'll just leave the settings as "Show hidden files" for now. It wouldn't be the first time that things disappear anyway.

Dawn,

How strange. I'm not sure why you are still getting that error. It appears to be correct in your screenshot.

I noticed that your command prompt has "Version 6.1.7600" instead of "Version 6.1.7601". Do you have SP1 installed? If not, then installing it, might also reset this Videos library back to it's default of not being hidden.
