what is the exact issue you're facing...
The issues never seem to end.
First of all there are Java classes that are not installed in the correct directory with the BI client tool that are in the Linux directories.
Then in the data-model-cmd.cmd script, you have to have extra parameters that are not required in the .sh version (because it's a client installation,
but, of course, if you're using the BI Admin Tool from Windows (ala v11.x) then that would always be a client installation).
Then it's not a trusted connection as it's a client installation so now you have to be running SSL in OBIEE as well (trusted store, key, etc.), etc.
Now I'm getting a useless message such as "connection error: -1", except the server, and the port are correct.
It's just an uphill battle.
Compare it to the data-model-cmd.sh script where it just works. Same parameters as I use in the .cmd script (well less required) and it worked first time.
Unfortunately I'm at a location where jumping on to the Linux box and running it from there are not possible.
So my original request is finding ANYONE who has successfully uploaded an RPD from the Windows client .cmd script and what they went through
'cause it's not obvious and has a number of 'unwritten' challenges.
My client system is Windows 7 (tested on Win 10 also) and a server is on Oracle Linux 6.
The only issue I've faced was copying two jars from Linux to Windows. It looks like you've already done it. After that, everything works for me.

First of all, thanks for the reply.
For your server, is it on the Windows machine as well (ie: Linux running on the same laptop)?
Reason I'm asking is there seems to be extra fields needed when you're running the command from a client machine (Windows) to a server (Linux) and one of them I believe was a mandatory -SSL field.
So I'm just wondering if it's different if on the same box versus from a box to the same box (whether or not running VirtualBox, etc.)?
Pictures from my blog post were taken on the following configuration: VM #1: OBIEE 12c working on Oracle Linux 6. VM #2: OBIEE client on MS Windows 10. Both VMs work on the same host (Windows 10). But I tried the same procedure with a remote Linux server (Windows 7 - client, OEL 6 - remote server). Everything worked fine without -SSL key.
By the way, have you checked things like a firewall and Java version/bitness? Sometimes the easiest answer is the best one.
