How to run Windows commands in the Command Modular Input

Path Finder

Does it require "\" to be escaped if I also have to put paths in CLI parameters? I can't save my command:

c:\tools\command.exe c:\logs\stuff\ -d 3 -n 11 -o "c:\output\output.txt"

How would I write this / add this to the Command Modular Input?

From Damien:

A single backslash should work :

Make sure that the command name and command arguments are in separate fields.

Command name : c:\tools\mycommand.exe

Command arguments : c:\logs\stuff\ -d 3 -n 11 -o c:\output\output.txt

Also look in splunkd.log for any errors.
