Running AL_Designer batch

We have just installed data designer 3.0 as a replacement for another ETL product. We have the software installed on a windows 2003 server and instead of installing the client on several users laptops, we have decided to remote connect to the Data Services server and run the app from there. The problem with this is that the last one logged in has all jobs trying to run from their repository. So, I checked the install manual and found the command script (pages 11 & 112) to allow multiple users. The script works fine until it tries to process the AL_Designer.exe line. When it tries to execute AL_Designer, we are presented with what looks to be an error box with the title Business Objects Data Designer. After some research on the forum, I only found one entry regarding the AL_Designer and that indicated the -g switch should be used. Tried that but still no luck. Did anyone have success running the script listed in the install guide?

Thanks a lot for any info you may provide!
