NAS not running - Error: Company Name 'XY' does not exist.

I'm wundering why I cannot start NAS correctly, NAS is installed correctly and the service starts... unfortunately there is some message inside the Event Log telling, thoe company name doesn't exist... NETWORT Authority is SuperUser...

Install syntax:
"D:\Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision\Application Server\nas.exe" appservername=NAS_XY_New, servername=XXX002, NETTYPE=TCP, database=XXX-XY-TEST, company="This is my Company", nettype=tcp, startupparameter=”TOKEN”, objectcache=40000, installasservice

net start NAS_XY_New

Error Message:
Company Name 'This is my Company' does not exist.

Any Ideas?

    Do you have a company named "This is my Company" in NAV?

    Do you use " before and after the company name if the company name has spaces? Upper case/lower case?

    Hi, yes, in deed:

    Company Name in NAV: Aaa Baa AG
    Syntax for NAS: "Aaa Baa AG"

    have no idea what's wrong...

    Does your real company name have any non-ASCII character in it (Byte value > 128)?

    I don't know how NAS behaves in this case. With Hotcopy it is not possible to run a backup from command line without creating a configuration file first.
