Hi Roderich:

We generate our production release with pp, and recently a new client ran into a weird issue.
When they run the executable file, the cache directory was input as the first argument, for example
When they do run.exe --setup the actual input was run.exe Sonntag\AppData\Local\Temp\par-4a616e20536f6e6e746167\cache-1535125512/run.exe --setup

We are running pp with version PAR Packager, version 1.037 (PAR version 1.014), And the client was running the executable on Windows 7 with cmd.
I think this might be some bad setup with their PATH variable, but I'm not 100% sure since I can't reproduce this on any VMs.
Any suggestion is appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,
