Can RM COBOL be started in Windows by passing the login and menu prompts to it from a text file?

Last Modified: 2020-04-13
I can run RM COBOL on an AIX system with the following:
runcobol SI/SI2000 -t 0 -k < ${dprmt}

When trying to do the same type of process in Windows with the following:
start /w %RM85%\RUNCOBOL SI/SI2000 k t=0 < %dprmt%

it stops at the User ID and nothing is displayed.  I have tried all types of variations, the variables are set correctly.

dprmt is a text file containing the responses to be passed to the prompts.
RM/COBOL Runtime - Version 11.01 for 32-Bit Windows.

Does anyone know of a way to get this to work in Windows?
