This is due to an issue with the QHOME environment variable

See: https://code.kx.com/q/learn/install/

Specifically: https://code.kx.com/q/learn/install/#step-5-edit-your-profile

setx QHOME "C:\q"

Note that this points to the folder containing q.k and not to the file itself

Error is : 'C:\q/q.k. OS reports: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

I could not see the q.k file in my installation folder. can you please let me know where can I get the q.k file.

When you download q it is included. Folder structure looks like:

├── kc.lic
├── w64
│   └── q
└── q.k

As shown on https://code.kx.com/q/learn/install/#step-3-install-the-license-file

Thanks I found q.k file and started working fine.
