Look at some suggestions here: windows - How can I debug a .BAT script? - Stack Overflow

Basically, to test it out, remove the ECHO OFF and carefully watch the output to see which line ran and which one was skipped. Windows has the /Y on cmd.exe to step though bat files that would have been THE perfect option for this, but was "wisely" removed from Windows.
