Microstation Connect (10.14.02.01) Batch converter not working from command line

I attempted to run a simple Batch converter from the command line using a folder as the source (c:\temp\*.dgn) 
The converter was setup to convert v8 dgns to v7.

Two of the dgns we converted successfully. The other two were not. 
The two that were successfully converted from v8 to v7 were empty dgns with no elements added to them.
The two that did not get converted had elements in them.

Before conversion:


After conversion:


When I attempted to open one of the dgns that did not get converted, I get the following message:

Which makes sense because file size is 0kb.

I ran the batch converter "inside" Microstation on the dgns that did not convert from the command line and the dgns did convert to v7 and retain the data from the original v8 file.

My question is: Why do these dgns files convert fine using the batch converter inside microstation but, not when using it from the commandline?

Here is what the error log says which is not very helpful:


Here are the contents of my batch converter file:
