Cannot run Batch Engine using seeded 'RunEngine' workflow. Fails on 'RunWindowsForecast'

When starting the seeded 'RunEngine' Workflow it fails on the step 'RunWindowsForecast'.

Tried using the seeded command line for 'RunWindowsForecast' which was "#application_root#\..\..\Demand Planner\Analytical Engines\bin\EngineManager.exe" 1 1.

I have also tried changing this command line to: "D:\Demantra\Demantra_12.2.3\Demand Planner\Analytical Engines\bin\EngineManager.exe" 1 1 however this also failed at the same step.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Started Workflow Manager, then started 'Run Engine' workflow.
2. Workflow fails straightaway on the seeded workflow step 'RunWindowsForecast'.
