PSEXEC access denied when using @file for multiple computers

I am attempting to use PSEXEC to deploy and MSP (Microsoft Installer Patch) file to about 80 computers. For some reason when I try to put the command in a batch file I get a logon failure on the remote computer. Below is the string from the batch file:

C:\PSTools\psexec \\@C:\PSTools\CPUListHPPC.txt -u "Domain\administrator" -p "PassWord" msiexec.exe /p "\\eoverbylt\osc\OSCC70R3G02Client.msp" /qn >deployhppc.log 2>&1

The funny thing is if I just open a command prompt and just run the command from there it works flawless.

So to explain the command.  PSexec is reading a list of computers from CPUListHPPC.txt and using the domain administrator account to log into the pc.  Then uses the /p switch to install the MSP (patch) file to the program with /qn or quiet mode enabled and logging to deployhppc.log file.

Is psexec ignoring the -u and -p switches for the username/password since it is being opened via a batch file?

Just for point of fact.  If you are looking to deploy to multiple PCs and don't want to wait on interactive messages from each PC.  You can use the -d switch to have the command simply continue to the next PC once the remote install process is started on each PC.

Deployed using the command instead of the batch file.  I believe there is a problem with PSExec when trying to run at a bat.  Here is a quick walkthrough on what I did:
