I have a batch file like this.  The batch file and program are in the same directory.  When I run the batch file as above I get a message about IOPermissions.

set PATH=\\Server\test1\test2\software\
call %PATH%Preprocessor.exe %PATH%config.cfg

However when I change the batch file to this the program works.

set PATH=\\Server\test1\test2\software\
call Preprocessor.exe %PATH%config.cfg

Why should including the UNC path cause the program to fail like this?
I'm using C# in visual studio 2008.  It's a windows (not web) application.
