This command is meant for Acrobat Reader. It should not appear in the
"Command line arguments to pass to the compiler" under the (La)TeX tab
in:  Build -> Define Output Profiles ...

Instead you should enter [DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]
under the Viewer tab after "Command:" under "View project's  output" and
under "Forward Search".
And select: "DDE command" instead of "Command line argument".
