    I recreated this problem. I downloaded your bat and after clicking on "more info" warning from defender your bat ran fine.

    What is trying to do with move ..\DME_AUM.pack .\Packs\DME_AUM.pack is move a file called "DME_AUM.pack" from one level lower in your directory tree to a folder called "Packs" in the directory where your bat file is running.

    I'm assuming you have it in the right place so I make a directory C:\Temp, another called C:\Temp\Packs and put the file in root of C:

    It works fine in admin cmd prompt:
    PHP Code:
    PS C:\Tempcmd
    Microsoft Windows 
    [Version 10.0.16299.64]
    c2017 Microsoft CorporationAll rights reserved.

    C:\Temp>move ..\DME_AUM.pack .\Packs\DME_AUM.pack
            1 file
    If I move the file back and change your bat to add a "pause" like this
    PHP Code:
    @echo off
    ..\DME_AUM.pack .\Packs\DME_AUM.pack
    then I get the same error as you:
    PHP Code:
    The system cannot find the file specified.
    Press any key to continue . . . 

    You could just put ext:pack in the search field in Windows File Explorer and move them manually but it is interesting the bat file doesn't find the file even when run as administrator.

    Can I ask are these files in the root of some drive? Like C:\ or D:\ ?

    That one is part of Empire Total War Darthmod in H drive. Adress is H:\Steam\steamapps\common\Empire Total War\data\DME\Packs
    The other ones: For instance, this one is very simple on the c drive.
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sudden Strike 2 Gold


    I used bat to exe converter and it worked. I reckon I could launch that in summer and Win 10 was installed in spring.

    Maybe useful info, I noticded steam folder in H drive is read-only and my user account has no full access. When tried to apply I get failed to enumerate objects in the container in that directory where bat files are.

    I don't think it is anything to do with Steam as it failed for me on a temp folder on the C drive.

    I don't think it is anything to do with using Home version either (I have Pro) or AV (as after unblocking the thing it failed just the same and I use defender).

    Either it is a bug in Windows or the bat script is wrong somehow. Considering it works if you copy/paste into cmd window it looks like a bug to me but I'm not a .bat expert.

    I'll keep looking but perhaps someone else will have a clue.

    As for the "enumerate objects" thing you need to take ownership first. I don't think it is relevant to your problem but try this from an admin cmd prompt. Leave the "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%" exactly as it is - don't put your name in - it will be replaced automatically by the cmd shell.

    This bit of code takes ownership of "H:\Steam" directory and then grants you full authority.

    PHP Code:
    takeown  /f  "H:\Steam" /r
    "H:\Steam" /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F) /

    I just had a very long Windows update. After this, all bat files launch without this error. Seems there was some general bug in the system and now its corrected. Case resolved.
