Well, I've never automated Tortoise, but the thing that jumps out at me
is that you're not telling it where to export from. The update command
works with just a path because the directory already knows which
repository it's a copy of; export, however, requires both the repository
path and the path to be exported to.

Naturally, I don't know what syntax you need, but I'll assume that you
can find it from here.
