When you run from the command line, there are a few things that might be

1. Different user. I know very little about Windows, but I think it might only
have the root user, so this might not be an issue for you.
2. Different environment. Even if you're executing the script as the same user,
your environment may be different. For example, many databases (Oracle, for
example) have environment variables that indicate where the client libraries

Hope that gives you some ideas. Someone more familiar with Windows can probably
help you more.
