Are you following an article on null-byte?

maybe because you don't have system privileges. try privilege escalation to get system using bypassuac or bypassuac vbs exploits, and from the new session you get, you can upload your file.

P.S: do you think dropping the .bat file itself in startup folder will start the meterpreter automatically on boot? i have never tried it myself...what i know is that you need to make a shortcut to the .bat file and drop that shortcut into the startup folder

That is what im doing... Im on mac terminal with metasploit but it comes with those errors as i described
