Topo To Raster By File- Invalid Feature Class

I am trying to reuse the output .txt parameter file from Topo To Raster in Topo To Raster By File.  This txt was generated by the GP Tool itself. 

Problem is: When I attempt to use this txt as the input parameter file for 'Topo To Raster By File' I get the following error:
ERROR 010134: Input does not contain a feature class.  That's the extent of the error message, so I've turned to the forums. 

I'm at 9.3.1. 

Here is an example of the input txt file:

POINT C:\Data\DEM\Test11.gdb\PntFC3720452300WC20050817 Z
POINT C:\Data\DEM\Test11.gdb\PntFC3720452400WC20050817 Z
POINT C:\Data\DEM\Test11.gdb\PntFC3720453300WC20050817 Z
POINT C:\Data\DEM\Test11.gdb\PntFC3720453400WC20050817 Z
ENFORCE ON
DATATYPE CONTOUR
ITERATIONS 40
ROUGHNESS_PENALTY 0.25000000000
DISCRETE_ERROR_FACTOR 1.00000000000
VERTICAL_STANDARD_ERROR 0.25000000000
TOLERANCES 2.50000000000 100.00000000000
CELL_SIZE 20.00000000000
MARGIN 20

Any help on this issue?  Have a feeling it's the auto-generated syntax in the txt file.  Have no issue running the Topo To Raster tool, but I'm working to create this with Python as part of a bigger routine and this is causing severe delay.  Ironically the help on these two tools says using this txt input parameter file is supposed to be 'easier'... Before I start in on that... is (are) my FC name(s) too long?  Will be checking while awaiting replies. 

Thanks, DJ
