I am new to Swish-e and have downloaded swish-e-2.4.7-win32.exe.

When attempting to install it in command prompt (MSDOS) I keep getting the following error message:

" '$' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

what do I need to to begin making this work? install a make file? is there anyone who can help me figure this out; as I want to figure this program out and make it work for my web application.

thanks for your help!

Welcome to WebmasterWorld trancendence77.

I hadn't heard of this one. I did see that they have a community support network on their site. Have you looked there yet?

I was just this morning I gave it a go. I only just was spidering my website with the spider.pl script but still didn't get further. I even didn't do a search yet ;-)

The potential to index word, pdf etc got me interested in this tool. And if you look at the search result on their website it looks promising.

I use swish-e on Linux though.
