Python – appcfg.py upload_data is failing with expected even though I’ve got it

google-app-enginepython

I am having trouble getting the bulk uploader to work. I have been
following the tutorial here:http://code.google.com/appengine/docs/
python/tools/uploadingdata.html.

When I enter the following command (from Windows, using PowerShell)

appcfg.py upload_data --config_file=src/friend_loader.py --filename=frienddata.csv --kind=Friend ./src/

I get the following error:

Usage: appcfg.py [options] upload_data

appcfg.py: error: Expected
argument.

This seems to happen no matter how I change the order of the
arguments, where the files are or any other combination that I have
tried.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Do you get any more information when you add "--noisy" ? Are you logged in before you run above line ?
