What kind of deploy job?
Which phase (dryrun, stage, commit) of the deploy does this fail in (if BLPackage or Patch Deploy job) ?
Are there any pre and post commands?
What's being deployed exactly?
What is the value of the STAGING_DIR target property for nhpvc005?
Windows 2012 R2 patching support was added in BSA version 8.5
Since it is BSA 8.3.03 i suspect could be issue.
You may try setting up automation principle once , just a guess.
In addition :-
This can occur if another application has installed an updated version of pthreadVC2.dll which is not compatible with BLDeploy.exe
The solution is to copy the pthreadVC2.dll from the ...\RSCD\ folder to the ...\RSCD\sbin\ folder.
This will then cause BLDeploy to load this version and work correctly.
Same with the VMware Update Manager Agent... It uses Shavlik too under the covers and conflicts with BSA's version.
This was any blpackage...I even had just an empty blpackage run against the box and we were producing the error.
Thanks for the advice here. Team mate followed steps and the copying of the .dll resolved our issue. Why is this happening in the first place and is this something related to 2012R2?
Thanks for everyone's input and help.

Glad to hear it worked for you.
No it's not related to 2012R2 but VMware EXEs who use this dll ( vmcad, vmdird, vmkdcd and vmwareidentitymgmtservice installed by VMWare vCenter 5.5)
This is a known defect QM001805702 which has already been fixed in BSA version 8.5
