Default Access denied when running Prime95 with -W option

I want to run Prime95 in a separate directory so I could try out different settings. But for some reason the -W option doesn't seem to work for me.

For example, I want to tell Prime95 to use the temporary directory C:\Prime95-2 so that it doesn't interfere with the normal settings. However, the command prime95 -W C:\Prime95-2 always gives the message "Access to C:\Prime95-2 was denied." Running cmd as administrator does not make a difference. Both my normal Prime95 directory and this new one have the same set of permissions. Anyone know how to resolve this error?

Remove the space between -W and folder's name.
