CSVDE does not return results

Hi, Experts -
I have been using a batch file that uses CSVDE to export some columns from our Active Directory.  This file has been running successfully every day for the past 4 years...!  All of a sudden, the utility will run but does not create the output file.  There is no error message displayed at all.

I execute the following batch file from an XP machine to create the extract file:
   csvde.exe -f ADHT_Export.csv -b LDAP_query ADHT 1dap@ht -s
   servernm.ad.companynm.com -v -r "(&(objectClass=user)(sn=*))" -l

I've attached a screenshot of the messages that flash on the screen during execution and then disappear.

Is there a way to figure out what is going on?  Has this happened to any of you?  FYI: I'm not a network admin so easy on the jargon, please.  THANKS IN ADVANCE for any insights you can pass along that will help me resolve this problem.

Open a command prompt and run the batch script from there.  See if any errors are displayed.

Also check the user named LDAP_query in Active Directory Users and Computers.  Verify that the account isn't locked out or disabled.

I hope that isn't the account's real password you just posted (just after ADHT).  If if is, you should change it immediately, both in Active Directory and in any scripts and scheduled tasks which use it.
