error when convert human snp138.txt to .vcf format

I have used the following command $ java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T VariantsToVCF -V:OLDDBSNP snp138.txt -R genome.fa -o snp138.vcf
to convert human snp138.txt file downloaded from to .vcf format.
As output the snp138.vcf file has been generated which has the size as 0 and the other 2 files have been generated as snp138.txt.idx and snp138.vcf.idx. How can i get the snp138.vcf?

    Let's try to find out why the conversion didn't work. Can you please post the console output that was generated when you ran the command?
