a .bat file that executes a program on my XP does not work when copied to another computer using Vista

SET AUSER=c:\ADVANT\DATA\
SET AFILES=c:\ADVANT\SYS\
Here is the batch file and program:

SET APROGS=c:\ADVANT\PROGS\
DEL c:\!\*.htm
c:
CD \ADVANT\PROGS
DEL STMTS?.KST
ADV < SCRPTGEN.KST
TYPE STMTS1.KST | T TRIMR > STMTS2.KST
ADV < STMTS2.KST

The batch file needs permissions as admin to run so if UAC is on you get access denied.. if you run it as a admin then by default it runs from the c:\windows\system32.

I ran into this problem when was trying to copy stuff using a batch file.  You would probably be better off running it as a vbs or you need to run as an admin and then add more solid file locations

so instead of CD \ADVANT\PROGS you put del c:\ADVANT\PROGS\STMTS?.KST
