Services can't interact with the desktop by default.  Andre's already helped you with this

As I recall, Windows services don't load the user's profile when they start.  In particular,
they don't load the part that is aware of mapped printers for that user.  So you'll have to
set up the printers in the batch file.

Is startup.bat starting to look attractive yet? :-)
