KNIME OJDBDC error in Command Line

Hi I’ve downloaded the latest java driver (ojdbc8) and have Knime 4.1.2 and have registered the driver with a valid connection. The worflow works perfectly in KNIME; however running it in command line mode, I get an error below. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have Google this error and have not found a solution. Just need to the flow to run in batch mode and then I can schedule it in Windows. When I run the following command in command line batch mode

start “” “C:\Program Files\KNIME\knime.exe” -consolelog -nosplash -data “c:\temp\90DAYS_APPS.log” -application org.knime.product.KNIME_BATCH_APPLICATION -workflowDir=“C:\Users\tariq.chaudhry\knime-workspace\90DAYS_APPS”

I get the following error

"…2020-03-12 11:33:31,764 : WARN : main : : ServerDBConnectorSettings : Oracle Connector : 0:1 : Due to restrictive licence terms we can not distribute the Oracle driver with the KNIME Analytics Platform.
You can download the latest driver at

2020-03-12 11:33:31,769 : WARN : main : : Node : Oracle Connector : 0:1 : Please register a compatible driver via the KNIME preference page. (For details see the log file)

Thank you in advance.

Hi, you need to export your preferences from KNIME and use the filename in the command line with the -preferences switch, ie,/* the below worsk in command line */

start “” “C:\Program Files\KNIME\knime.exe” -consolelog -nosplash -data “c:\temp\90DAYS_APPS.log” -preferences=“c:\temp\Knime_Preferences.epf” -application org.knime.product.KNIME_BATCH_APPLICATION -workflowDir=“xxxx\knime-workspace\90DAYS_APPS”
