    Try running the .bat as administrator (right click) and see if it works correctly.

    gotta use /h in to copy to/from hidden or system files like abbodi says...
    the arguments are a little weird in that you don't need a / for each one. so you can combine them like /hy would copy hidden/system files without a yes prompt

    what abbodi said. ie:


    if exist %Scripts%\InstallTips.ini cmd /c echo F | XCOPY /c /q %Scripts%\InstallTips.ini %Scripts%\InstallTips_x86.ini

    cmd /c echo F | xcopy %Scripts%\Overlay\81x86\*.* %systemdrive% /cherkyi


    :InstallTips
    if %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == x86 (
    echo InstallTips.exe & If Exist %Scripts%\InstallTips.exe start /wait %Scripts%\InstallTips.exe
    ) else (
    if exist %Scripts%\InstallTips.ini cmd /c echo F | XCOPY /c /q %Scripts%\InstallTips.ini %Scripts%\InstallTips_x86.ini
    if exist %Scripts%\InstallTips.ini DEL /f /q %Scripts%\InstallTips.ini
    if exist %Scripts%\InstallTips_x64.ini cmd /c echo F | XCOPY /c /q %Scripts%\InstallTips_x64.ini %Scripts%\InstallTips.ini
    echo InstallTips.exe x64 & If Exist %Scripts%\InstallTips.exe start /wait %Scripts%\InstallTips.exe
    )
    echo. & goto :eof

    It's probably the data execution prevention stuff since it's a system folder.
    I haven't tried this, but you could try adding this to beginning of your script to bypass the UAC check:
    Code:
    :Begin UAC check and Auto-Elevate Permissions
    :-------------------------------------
    REM  --> Check for permissions
    >nul 2>&1 "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\cacls.exe" "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\system"
    
    
    REM --> If error flag set, we do not have admin.
    if '%errorlevel%' NEQ '0' (
    echo:
    echo   Requesting Administrative Privileges...
    echo   Press YES in UAC Prompt to Continue
    echo:
    
    
        goto UACPrompt
    ) else ( goto gotAdmin )
    
    
    :UACPrompt
        echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) > "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
        echo UAC.ShellExecute "%~s0", "", "", "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
    
    
        "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
        exit /B
    
    
    :gotAdmin
        if exist "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" ( del "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" )
        pushd "%CD%"
        CD /D "%~dp0"
    :--------------------------------------
