A good idea, but if you're wedded to 20.7 (as I am), try:

defun set-shell-cmdproxy() (interactive) (setq shell-file-name "cmdproxy") 
(setq explicit-shell-file-name "cmdproxy") (setenv "SHELL" 
explicit-shell-file-name) (setq w32-quote-process-args t) (setq 
shell-command-switch "/c") ) (set-shell-cmdproxy)
