Batch File at startup for vibestreamer

I'm trying to get a startup script for vibestreamer on one of our servers to work right.  Whenever someone logs into the server or logs the last person out the program stops running.

It is a simple batch scipt that is placed in startup directory for all users "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\" right now that does open up vibestreamer when executed it runs the vibestream.bat file that is located in the program file\vibestreamer directory

the problem is when it is ran it executes vibestreamer.exe in the wrong directory "C:Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs"  I know this is happening because when executed it trys to create xml files in the wrong directory, xml files that should be created in the "C:\Program Files\VibeStreamer\" Directory

When I run the vibestreamer.exe file from the "C:\Program Files\VibeStreamer\" Directory it starts up fine, no issues.

Summary, I need a way to execute vibestreamer.bat file so that it runs correctly on startup for all users.
