mysqldump - windows command shell

I have a mysqldump script working well from the windows command shell, but when I try to run it in a .bat file or .cmd file it always fails. Here is my command:

"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\bin\mysqldump" -h *** -u *** -p*** --databases *** > "C:\myfakepath\_Database\backups\app_%date:~0,3%.bak"

But when I run this inside a .bat/.cmd file I get the error: "mysqldump: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user '***'@'c-2-4-64' (using password: YES) when trying to connect".

I don't understand this. Why do my credentials work in a command shell, but not when launched from file?
