Letsencrypt.exe closes output window

Exactly as it says. I’m pretty sure it’s not working, but not having the output is frustrating me. Right when the program seems to finish doing a thing, it just quits and closes the console window, I can’t read what happened.

My domain is:
I ran this command:
It produced this output:
It closes the window every time <—The problem
My web server is (include version):
XAMPP // Apache
Server version: Apache/2.4.28 (Win32)
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Windows 10 Home
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
yes (well, if you want to call cmd.exe a root shell, sure)
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

Hi @jrogersfl,

As @ahaw021 pointed, letsencrypt.exe is a clilent developed by a third party so you could get more help on their github site.

Anyway, I suppose letsencrypt.exe is opening a new command window because the command window where you are executing it has no admin privileges so the program needs to open a new one, do something and closes it immediately. To avoid this:

1.- Click on Windows Start button.
2.- Type cmd
3.- In the results, right click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator


4.- From this command prompt, navigate to the dir where letsencrypt.exe is installed and execute the command again.

I hope this helps.
