I want to run a command in PowerShute Network Shutdown and can't get it to work.

I created a batch file here C:\APC_Server_Shutdown\shutdown_untangle.cmd

The command in the batch file is
plink.exe -batch -pw [password] root@ shutdown -h now

plink.exe reside in the folder C:\APC_Server_Shutdown\

When I right click on the shutdown_untangle.cmd batch file it works. When enter this "C:\APC_Server_Shutdown\shutdown_untangle.cmd" in a command I get

'plink.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

What am I doing wrong?
