When an incorrect directory is entered (for example -d folder), game crashes and creates a minidump of cause of crash. Which states:

Comment: 'Application has crashed: C++ exception
[File] Cannot open "folder\\context.xml" => error code 2: The system cannot find the file specified.
(d:\engine\engine7f_payday2_pc\engine\dieselx\dieselx\blobs\../utility/Archive.cpp:1749)

If commands (-d folder -o cntst.txt) are used, the minidump states the following:

Comment: 'Application has crashed: C++ exception
[File] Cannot open "folder\cntst.txt" => error code 3: The system cannot find the path specified.
