Well D: is understood as server/host name...
If you are on your pc in that directory (and drive...)
What happens when you type scp ./testr.txt unixuser@unixhost:/path?

the error that I get is :
Code:
./testr.txt: No such file or directory

I want to make a generic script by which user can upload anything to the server from his desktop

Why not using a GUI tool like WinSCP to copy the files?

I think below one may be helpful for you which copy from windows to Unix.

If windows to Unix then try :
Code:
pscp -l username Source_file  Servername_with_domain_name:<Full_path>
