You probably need to use %%i instead of %1. Pretty sure I had this working
at one stage (before I tried it on Win9x).

Indeed, none of this will work on Win 9X which is the whole reason that
lcp.bat is used. If you can find a clean solution for all Windows platforms
we would be really keen to see it. For now , it is a lowest common
denominator approach (and with Win9x, that is pretty low :-)
