          The problem is that in your batch file you don't supply the full path to your executable (StereoPlayer.exe). Perhaps it is defined in Windows PATH environment variable, but you shouldn't rely on this. You can either set the current directory to where it is, or (preferrably) supply the full path in the batch file.


          I would suggest using Buddy API for what you are trying to do. That way you can do away with the batch file altogether.
