ERROR code PE095




I have a Custom Sensor that requires a batch in my PC to read a txt file produced in a remote server (of which I'm admin) by another script, thanks to a scheduled task. If I try to run the script in my PC by cmd, it works; when I try to setup the custom sensor, I have the error of the title. I have selected "Use Windows credentials of parent device" option and I have already verified the credentials of parent device (they are correct because other sensor for the same device are working correctly). Where is my mistake?

Thanks a lot for your help, I'm quite desperate.
