"Host does not exist" when run from Task Scheduler

Hi, I'm trying to automate FTP file synchronisation by running a batch file from Task Scheduler (currently on Windows 2008R2 server).

The batch file I'm trying to run contains the following:
WinSCP.com /Console /Script=WinSCP_SyncRA_CV_script.txt    

The script file it is referencing simply contains this:
open RA_CV_Storage_FTP
synchronize local
close
exit    

When I manually run the batch file everything works perfectly.
However, when I run it via Task Scheduler the batch file appears to run because it writes to log file but I get the following:
Searching for host...
Host "RA_CV_Storage_FTP" does not exist.    

Anybody have any ideas what might be going on?

Is the WinSCP.ini file in the same folder as WinSCP.exe? Does the scheduled job have that as it's working folder? My guess is that there's no site named RA_CV_Storage_FTP in the ini file, so it's treating it as a domain name.
