Chosen solution

-osint is not meant to be used on the command line, but is meant to be used with shortcuts launched via the OS shell. When this parameter is used (should be the first parameter) then only a limited set of parameters (commands) is allowed and a command should should be followed by one parameter to guard against applications that do not format this parameter correctly.

Thanks cor-el. I read #384384, but I did not glean the information you so clearly stated from it. Maybe I missed something. Excellent, precise answer!!!
