RequireJs Optimization on Windows fails

Trying to optimize an requirejs-based project on Windows. Have put the r.js.cmd in the Scripts folder along with the following nodeBuild.js file.

({
baseUrl: ".",
paths: {
    jquery: "empty:"
},
name: "main",
out: "main-built.js"
})

When using the command

node r.js.cmd -o nodeBuild.js

I get the following response:

r.js.cmd:1
(function (exports, require, module, __filename, __dirname) { @IF EXIST "%~dp0
                                                              ^
SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL
at Module._compile (module.js:439:25)

at Function.Module.runMain (module.js:497:10)
at startup (node.js:119:16)
at node.js:906:3

Tried searching for it but can't find similar error description and since it is windows I use the r.js.cmd instead of the r.js. The requirejs main.js file is in the Scripts folder and all other modules is in subdirectories to that.

Don't run it through node.

r.js.cmd -o nodeBuild.js
Answer

Based on the documentation it seems to me that the equivalent of a *nix:

r.js -o nodeBuild.js

would be on Windows:

r.js.cmd -o nodeBuild.js

That is, don't pass it to Node but let Windows run it. r.js.cmd is a Windows command file, which Node cannot interpret. When you do it like you've shown in your question, Node tries to interpret that file and fails.
