since xep is really xep.bat IIRC, you need to resolve
running other batch files from the first one?
I can't remember the syntax.

Java (even on Windows machines) uses / instead of \
1. Avoid c: in any of the paths if you can. It causes trouble.
2. Have a look at xep.bat and work out the classpath used.
Rewrite using / syntax and try again. It should work.
