I eventually resolved the problem for my situation. There are a few things that can cause a "parameter error" (although I could not find an exhaustive list), but one of them is if you cannot write an output file, say if that output directory does not exist or is not write-able.
In my case, it was especially strange because I did not change the permissions of the folder. It was a weird MS Windows OS thing where it just "freaked out" and changed permissions on its own. Moreover, it didn't let me fix the permissions until I installed the updates and rebooted the server.
FWIW, here are the details:
GAMS 23.3 64-bit
Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (64-bit)

Did you ever resolve this? I just ran into the same problem, and cannot seem to find a good solution via a Google search. In fact, other than a GAMS manual simply repeating the fact that error code 6 is a parameter error, I couldn't find anything other than this post.

Using McCarl's tutorial, I've developed an Excel file to run GAMS from it. It is currently working in my PC (Windows 7 64 bits Office 2007), but when I try to use it in other computers, an "Error Code 6: parameter error" message pops up.
Do you know what is possibly causing it?
Note that I'm using 23.5.2 version with a CPLEX license.
