Don't run it on scriptname. strace is a mingw program (for hopefully
obvious reasons). It can't execute shell scripts. You have to run it
on the shell which is unable to find the scriptname. You indicated that
scriptname ran correctly when invoked by hand so I don't see that any
useful information would come about from running it via strace, even if
it did work.
If you really want to execute a script, the way to do it is:
strace -owqwer sh script
or, in your case:
strace -owqwere sh -c "script"
