Standalone install fails to recognize worker path

Hello all,

Currently trying to install the standalone version of cryosparc and I am immediately running into this error.
Here is my submitted command:

cd cryosparc_master

./ --standalone
–license $LICENSE_ID
–worker_path /home/lab/software/cryosparc/cryosparc_worker \
–cudapath /usr/local/cuda-11.8
–ssdpath /media/lab/4a0cf437-0e5c-4c66-b697-9080aade4231/cryosparc_cache2
–initial_email “”
–initial_password “Password123”
–initial_username “user”
–initial_firstname “Name”
–initial_lastname “Last”
–port 39000

And it outputs there error:

Unknown option: /home/lab/software/cryosparc/cryosparc_worker

Not sure if I am just making a silly mistake or what. Would appreciate it if anyone can point me in the right direction.


Hey @wsalmen,

Make sure the LICENSE_ID variable is set and not empty.
If it isn’t, the script may parse ‘--worker_path’ as the argument to ‘--license’, causing it to complain that ‘/home/lab/software/cryosparc/cryosparc_worker’ is not an option.

Thank you very much! I reloaded my terminal and forgot that I needed to rerun the export LICENSE_ID command.
