Did you mean bin/rotatelogs.exe ?

If that doesn't lick it, what about using 'bin\rotatelogs.exe'?

This might be a very odd case where a shell command's shell doesn't like
forward slashes (cmd.exe is picky).  I've actually worked out how to
nest double quotes at one point, so that the command was quoted (useful
for paths-in-spaces and forward slashes.)

cmd.exe likes "c:/winnt/notepad.exe" or c:\winnt\notepad.exe and doesn't
like c:/winnt/notepad.exe.
