I'm trying to create a shell Action for an Enterprise Manager running on a Windows server. Everything I try results in the following error (in EMService.log):

INFO | jvm 1 | 2010/12/06 12:23:56 | 12/06/10 12:23:56 PM PST [ERROR] [Manager.Action] Action "Test_Action_Name" failed to execute shell command "echo This is a test >> c:\tmp\introscope_msg.txt"

There are no other details. Does anyone have examples of working shell Actions for Windows? Also, is there any documentation of how the Command Parameters are used in the command? Does the value of the Parameter simply get appended to the command? Is there some way to send it in as a key->value pair?
