Python / Arcpy crashes when I tried to run the Quick Import (data interop) tool, using ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2.2.


I opened DOS command and run the following:


c:\Python27\ArcGISx6410.2\python.exe c:\GIS\Temp\


where the Python script is exactly the same as this sample provided by Esri here:


ArcGIS Help (10.2, 10.2.1, and 10.2.2)


Python crashes with the following message:


Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'GpMetadataFunctions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fc3cc631e44ad86' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file spec


File name: 'GpMetadataFunctions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fc3cc631e44ad86'

What's going on there, Esri???


I have the data interop extension checked out with a borrowed advanced desktop license, with Windows 2008 R2 64-bit.
