Startup parameters for SQL Assistant V13.0

I can no longer run SQL Assistant from a command line since upgrading to Version 13.0. I am using a -C parameter to name an ODBC data source, but since SQL Assistant now starts up with a default of Teradata.net, I'm thinking that it does not recognize the data source. Any suggestions?

The default for the connection type is initially ODBC.
However the connection type will be remembered based on the last value you set it to.
When using command line parameters it will use the connection type you set before last closing the application, so if you were using ODBC last time it should use ODBC when you later use the parameters.
Note that there was a bug related to the initial connection type in earlier versions. Make sure you are using 13.0.0.8 or above.
