For example, to run the help command: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_25\bin\java.exe -jar CobieQCReporter.jar -h

Supplamentary:

  1. There is a .jpg screenshot of the two commands being executed in Windows.
  2. There are sample .bat files that you can double click on to test. These will only work if you have the java bin in your path.
