[Solved] Chapter 8: yiic shell problems

I can’t get yiic shell to run. I’ve added the framework directory to my PATH (I’m on windows), used the command prompt to get into my app directory (d:\program files\…\htdocs\trackstar) and I run “yiic shell” and nothing happens. i tried running “yiic shell protected\config\main.php” and nothing happens. If I run “yiic shell protected\config\console.php” I get

Yii Interactive Tool v1.1 (based on Yii v1.1.6)

Please type ‘help’ for help. Type ‘exit’ to quit.

But then it kicks me back to the regular command prompt immediately.

Any idea where I’ve gone wrong here? Everything was going smoothly until this point for me!


Had a typo in my main.php I just found. :( please ignore this.
