How to transfer data to Mapper?

How to transfer data to Mapper?


I am trying to automatize data transfer
from a file to a Mapper (BIS 9.1).
I am working in "WIN 2003 Server" environment.

At first I execute a "*.cmd" file with a line included:
"C:\BIS\mapper.exe -sA -fC:\filename.txt"

The file "filename.txt" contains BPRUN$ statement and filepath to the file with the data I want to transfer to Mapper.
In Mapper program I use "@ret" statement to import the file to Mapper.

When I execute *.CMD file I recive an error message:
"mapper.exe failed to start because mpcipc.dll was not found."
That is strange because the file mpcipc.dll is located in "C:\BIS\Shared" directory.
If I copy "mpcipc.dll" under "C:\BIS\" directory everything works but then I cant sign in to Mapper system.

What to do to solve this problem?
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
