Bamboo won't run my test exe


I have a cppUnit test-executable.
In my build plan I tried "command" and "script" tasks, but it refuses to run.

I get :  

Failing task since return code of [C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c lcvserver\Debug\LCVServerTest.exe] was -1073741515 while expected 0

When I run the same command from the commandline, in the build-folder it executes fine.

I am running bamboo using BambooConsole.bat (so not as service), I start it with "run as administrator". So environment-settings and user are the same  (I think, checked with ''set" and "whoami" in script...)

Ofcourse I googled all there seems to be on the subject, any other tips ?

Kind regards,

I figured out it has to do with the fact that I use Visual Leak Detector.
Without that, it runs.
So I guess it can't find VLD's dll.
It is not in the PATH when running from bamboo. (Why not?)

Fixed it by adding in script:
PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files (x86)\Visual Leak Detector\bin\Win32;C:\Program Files (x86)\Visual Leak Detector\bin\Win64;
