I am trying to run a python script in ADF using the batch service but when I debug it kicks out the following error:


This is the output:

Here is the command:


Here is the batch server start task:


I have ensured that the script is in the correct folder (budgets v3)

    I ended up using azure's logic app to complete the task so that I no longer needed to try run my script

    Hello @Calrin Curtis ,
    Thanks for the ask and using Microsoft Q&A platform .
    As you may have figured at this time , that the Custom activity basically triggers the Azure batch instance . The work load which you are creating ( while setting up Batch service ) is it running on windows or linux ? . The command which you are running will not work on Windows OS .

    Please do let me know how it goes .
