But that won't work on Win 9x,ME neither (at least the echo stuff) because
the code directly creates the process (without invoking command.com) and
echo is only an internal command. I. e. CVSNT behaves already untypical on
Win 9x,ME platforms. Would it be a problem to make a configuration option
out of this (just a small toggle that enables the launch of cmd.exe)?
Otherwise I'll compile my own binaries...
