When running the follow script I get an error as follows, any suggestions:

At C:\Users\eroche\desktop\prod2testcopy.ps1:4 char:109
+ ... NewestFile=%%I)
+                    ~
Missing statement body in for loop.
    + CategoryInfo          : ParserError: (:) [], ParseException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : MissingLoopStatement


The Script:

SET DatabaseBackupPath=\\fpbackup\backup
echo.
echo Restore Database
FOR (/F "delims=|" %%I IN ('DIR "%DatabaseBackupPath%\sql\AOSProd_backup*.bak" /B /O:D') set NewestFile=%%I)
copy "%DatabaseBackupPath%\WebServer\%NewestFile%" "c:\"

That is not a Powershell script, it's a batch script. Save it as prod2testcopy.cmd and try again.
SET DatabaseBackupPath=\\fpbackup\backup
echo.
echo Restore Database
FOR /F "delims=" %%I IN ('DIR "%DatabaseBackupPath%\sql\AOSProd_backup*.bak" /B /O:D') set NewestFile=%%I
copy "%DatabaseBackupPath%\WebServer\%NewestFile%" "c:\"
