[mrtg] Getting error when trying to use new template with cfgmaker

What is the below message telling me?  Is the error in that I am submitting or is it in the template.
This is what I am pasting on the command line
perl c:\mrtg-2.16.2\bin\cfgmaker --host-template=windows_host.htp --community=da1sy  --global="PathAdd: c:\Progra~1\RRDtool" --global="LogFormat: rrdtool" --global "WithPeak[_]: ymw" --global="Workdir: c:\Progra~1\RRDtool\rrd_data"  --global="Options[_]: bits,growright" --ifref=ip --ifdesc=name --no-down --output="c:\mrtg_setup\configs\localhost2.cfg" localhost

The template is
Host template for windows<http://www.steveshipway.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=1615&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a>
from http://www.steveshipway.org/software/

I am trying to graph the usage on my NT server that is running mrtg.

C:\MRTG_SETUP>perl c:\mrtg-2.16.2\bin\cfgmaker --host-template=windows_host.htp --community=da1sy  --
