I understood that. But I think it's not really relevant for your problem.

This shows that it is called, but it doesn't show /how/ it is called.

As Arthur said, CVSNT may not see the .bat file's return code but the
cmd.exe return code -- which not necessarily is the same. 

I don't know cmd.exe intimately because I don't use it, but you can
experiment a bit with it to determine how its return code handling works.
Make sure you call your batch files with "cmd.exe /c <batch file>" and then
check the return code of that command (which is different from running a
batch file in the same session and checking its return code).

If the return code passing should be a problem, you could also try running
your scripts as .cmd files instead of .bat files, or set the ERRORLEVEL
variable explicitly before exiting, or use a batch file compiler to create
an .exe from your script (which you can call directly, without going
through cmd.exe), or use a different script -- Windows Script Host (VBS,
JavaScript mainly), Python, bash, 4NT, whatever.
