The Schedule-Service runs after start normally with a system account. That means, that all your mapped network-drives which you have as a user on the system not available.

So you can start the service as the user, from which you can start the script on the promt. Go to Services / Startup from the service schedule. There you can put the user in the field "log on as".

Another way ist to map the Drives in your script with the command "net use ...".
