I tried to run that on my named instance and it was not able to connect. I use the following syntax to start:

sqlbpm -Sservername\instancename -E -Oc:\testbpm.txt

following is the error i am getting:

Server not defined! Connecting to localhost.
Connecting using Trusted Connection!true
Writing output to : true
Template not defined! Using default template!
Failed to connect to server .

Can anyone confirm that it is working with named instances ?

There needs to be a space between the parameter and the value.  Your call should actually be:

sqlbpm -S servername\instancename -E -O c:\testbpm.txt

If this doesn't work for you, please let me know.
