Creating a deployment package via the command line option displays the following alert:

Runtime Error!

Program: C:\sdp_11\DeploymentPackager.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it an 
unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more 


This is caused by an incorrect obfuscated password (-opwd) being specified in the command line parameters.

What To Do

Ensure the obfuscated password is correct. If it is accurate and continues to display the error, enter a plain text password using the -pwd parameter or use the Deployment Packager user interface.

If you need more information or guidance, then please contact technical support.
