cfexecute Issue After Migration From 4.5.1 to MX 7....

Hi, I've read a similar post on this issue for version 6.1
but the accepted answer didn't work for us so I'm posting our issue. In a nutshell the cfexecute stopped functioning properly after the migration from CF ver 4.5.1 to MX 7. The web server is 2003. We've verified that we can run the bat file from the command prompt on the server with the expected results. We've also added in the timeout variable per a post suggestion as well but to no avail. Here's the code chunk from 4.5.1:

      arguments="ereqtf ereqdh2 IPXXX.XX.X.XXX/export/home/ereqtf/ereq"

Basic modification we've tried with a number of variations:
      arguments="D:\java\lib\ereq\basicSSH.bat basicSSH ereqtf ereqdh2 IPXXX.XX.X.XXX/export/home/ereqtf/ereq"

Any other thoughts\tricks\workarounds?

    We had similar issues and couldn't get it worked out.  We tried out the custom tag, CFX_EXEC, and it has worked for us.  You can get it here:
