Invoking FFMPEG CLI without the GUI - Environment Variables

Hello,

I am attempting to get Topaz Video AI, v 3.3.2, running from the command prompt on Windows 10 without the GUI. I have the two environment variables properly set, but when I call the ffmpeg command, it errors out when trying to verify my authentication credentials. It seems that rather than use the path stored within the environment variable VEAI_MODEL_DIR to locate the .tpz file, it attempts to use whichever directory the cli is pointed to when evoking the command. So, if I’m in the directory X:\Topaz it looks for the .tpz file “X:\Topaz\models\models\auth.tpz”:
2023-07-03 17:06:37 8732 INFO: Checking for authentication at e:\Topaz\models/models/auth.tpz
2023-07-03 17:06:37 8732 CRITICAL: Cannot open zip file at: e:\Topaz\models/models/auth.tpz
2023-07-03 17:06:37 8732 CRITICAL: Invalid auth file

To confirm that my Environment variables are correctly set:
e:\Topaz>dir “%VEAI_MODEL_DIR%”
El volumen de la unidad C es Windows
El número de serie del volumen es: 121F-77F0

Directorio de C:\ProgramData\Topaz Labs LLC\Topaz Video AI\models
