I could fix this issue by using the following:
"C:\tsi.portal\tabcmd\extras\Command Line Utility\tabcmd.exe" get /views/Dashboard/ServicesDashboard.png?product=ted%%20ber?:refresh=yes -f "E:/Dashboard/Snapshot.png" --timeout 600
As you see it works on using only 2 "%" symbols....recehed and works fine
you should enclose the get's string in double quotes like this
tabcmd get "/views/Sales_Analysis/Sales_Report.png" -f "Weekly-Report.png"
If you are playing with .png images this thread could be useful too

Excellent. Thanks for this!
That "%" had me for hours.
sometimes a double escape for "%" or "," may be necessary.
Those links are useful and yes, I will certainly watch out for those double escapes in the future.
