Have you tried Maris' suggestion and put quotes around
the value of the input= option?

The command that you copied below has a space in the
path leading to srtm.txt. If you do not quote this,
command line parsing _will_ break. This seems to be
the cause of your troubles. To make things easier,
avoid using folder names with spaces. For a quick
fix, rename "GIS projects" -> "GIS_projects".
