I think I already answered your concern a couple of years ago on  This is a
problem with MiKTeX, which for some reasons is less informative when
you ask for more information.  The issue has been reported more than 4
years ago, but apparently no action has been taken so fare:  If you want it to be
fixed you should complain with MiKTeX developer.

For your information, you can use TeX Live also on Windows, and it
doesn't suffer from this issue.

Yes, we found that enabling file:line:error style greatly simplifies
parsing of the output, as we don't have to do the complicated exercise
of guessing which is the last open file.
