Eh? If you've already navigated to the folder, no path arg is needed, unless the name of the executable itself contains spaces, which "mysqldump" does not. If you need to supply a path containing spaces, tyou need to quote the segment that contains spaces, or the whole path arg.

Consider working through a tutorial on use of cmd.exe. It's basic.

To see syntax for mysqldump, the command is not ...

mysqldump --version

It is ...

mysqldump --help --verbose | more
