I'm trying to complete a silent install batch script and having issues passing the credentials to my service.  The svc account and password both have special characters and I've tried using escape characters to get the credentials to pass through.  I was able to get basic character credentials to pass for testing but that will not work in production.  See attachment for my script, any help would be much appreciated!
