It may be too late, but I just spotted a note that seems relevant.
On some regular housekeeping run initiated by desktop
CMD.EXE was started with the above path as the current directory.
UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory.
C:\WINDOWS>"C:\Program Files\Desktop inventory scanner\DTv9w32.exe"
It may be you were starting batch sas in a window addressed by the
server name rather than by a drive letter.
That sounds like it may be a significant restriction on our
assumptions about start-up folders
