using bcp in a batch file with Management Studio Express 2005

I have tried using bcp with a batch file to load data from the command shell into SQL Server Management Studio Express 2005, but it fails.

I can use bulk insert and bullk copy in a query window within Management Studio Express 2005 and it works fine.

Will bcp with a batch file not work from the command shell with SQL Server Management Studio Express 2005?

It works fine in SQL Server 2005 or 2000.  Just not in Management Studio Express 2005.  I wasn't sure if this was a limitation?
