Hi Sara,

the problem could be related to the presence of spaces in the path of your files. Try to 
wrap the gpf name with quotes as:

autogrid4 -p "C:\Documents and Settings\s\1.gpf" -l "C:\Documents and Settings\s\1.glg"

or omit the path portion if you're running AutoGrid in the directory containing the files:

autogrid4 -p 1.gpf -l 1.glg

Hope this helps,
