Can't seem to get my Win Srv 2008 R2 going
Turns out if you call server.exe through a batch file... make sure the batch resides in the root directory (with server.exe). So if your setup is C:\NS2\server.exe put the batch in C:\NS2.

The entire process is run as Administrator but I gave Users modify rights on the root directory just to be sure. No dice.
I'm running out of options to try, and this is really frustrating me since I seem to be alone in this. Anyone?
Updated: I've tried switching slashes around, removing the 'old' game_setup.xml, ensured ANSI encoding, running without parameters.... still nothing.
