I have a network shared folder on Server1 on which I have placed SP1 for Win7 (windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe) and batch File SP1.bat
SP1.bat  -  robocopy "\\30SWL-Server-02\SP1\windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe" "C:\Temp"

On my Windows 7 PC,I have created pclist.txt file and placed it in the root of C (C:)
pclist.txt has name of computer (later I wanted to add PC names to it as needed)

I have user account which is a member of Domain Admin group

I opened cmd under that account and typed following command:

psexec @C:\pclist.txt –u domainname\username –p Password "\\30SWL-Server-02\SP1\SP1.bat"

The result in cmd:

C:\Windows\system32>psexec @C:\pclist.txt -u domainname\username -p Password "\\30SWL-GHOST-02\SP1\SP1.bat"

I suspect that you created the batch file not in a plain editor like Notepad, but in a word processor that replaced the "-" with a dash or something else.
Open the file in Notepad, and make sure that every "-" is actually a minus sign.
While you're at it, make sure that all quote signs you use are real double quotes as well, not "pretty" ones.
