stsadm command line error

There is a common problem with stsadm being executed from the command line. For example, you run:
stsadm -o installfeature -name [featurename]

And you get “Command line error.” in the console. It is because you have copy/pasted the command from your browser or somewhere else. There is a problem with the encoding.

Solution: Type the command in the console window, don’t paste it.

Hope this helps.
