Change that to
cmd.exe /c "C:\temp\version.bat"

Small correction:
Type rtb.mkr > rtb.mkr
will not create a zero length file. If 'rtb.mkr' does not exist, the
Type command will throw an error. And if it exists, the new file will
contain the same as the rtb.mkr file.

To create test files, use
echo test > rtb.mkr

Yes, sorry. Those screenshots are wrong.
