I'm trying to generate IDB files from the command-line using the -o flag of IDA, something like this: ida.exe -B input.dll -oC:\Results\input.idb. However, it seems that the value of the -o arguments are completely ignored.

I've tried this with ida.exe, ida64.exe, idat.exe, and idat64.exe. I've tried adding -c and also tried removing -B flags. None of these work.

Any switches after the input filename are ignored. Just move the filename to the end.
