Hello Ralf, Mike and Eli,

I wanted to post an update. As I said earlier, cmd.exe at Command
Prompt works. But cmdproxy.exe does not work. It turns out that Emacs
calls cmdproxy.exe when I do 'M-x shell <RET>' not cmd.exe:

shell run      *shell* C:/Program Files/Emacs/bin/cmdproxy.exe -i

Please let me know if you have any ideas?

Best,
Coskun
