Description

Good day!

I'd found that *smartctl.exe* works perfectly when called from the current directory. For example:

C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin> cd
C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin
C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin> smartctl.exe -l selftest -a /dev/sda -d aacraid,0,0,0
...

In this case it prints SMART Self-set log. All good.

But!

C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin> cd
C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin
C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin>.\smartctl.exe -l selftest -a /dev/sda -d aacraid,0,0,0

or

C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin>"C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin\smartctl.exe" -l selftest -a /dev/sda -d aacraid,0,0,0

made me crazy %) by whipping out window telling "Control and Monitoring utility for SMART Disks has stopped to working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program".

C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin>"C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin\smartctl.exe" -V

smartctl 7.3 2021-08-27 r5230 [x86_64-w64-mingw32-2008r2-sp1] (CircleCI)

This is a 7.3-prerelease CI build. The -d aacraid,... option was disabled one commit later (r5231) because the code is unmaintained and reportedly broken. See ticket #1515 for details.

Please retry with 7.3 final and -d aacraid,0,0,0,force option.

The possible connection of the crash to the specified path to the executable is interesting and may help some volunteer developer with access to this controller to find the root of the problem.
