I've tried the following commands to get the offline mode to work with
no success

D:\Plone3\Insite2>d:\Plone3\Insite2\bin\buildout -o buildout.cfg

Error: invalid command: buildout.cfg

D:\Plone3\Insite2\bin>buildout -c-o d:\Plone3\Insite2\buildout.cfg

Error: invalid command: d:\Plone3\Insite2\buildout.cfg

The only one which will work is this

D:\Plone3\Insite2\bin>buildout -c d:\Plone3\Insite2\buildout.cfg

The path is completely correct
