Thanks, gavenkoa.

Well, could you have a try on your environment?

I am suspicious that shell-command of emacs doesn't support pipe, thus
the two commands fail.

What OS you run?

shell-command pass typed string to command interpreter like 'sh' or 'cmdproxy.exe'.

So you must type command that correspond to your command interpreter language syntax.

Under Linux all work fine out of the box.

For Windows I use Cygwin (be ware put 'cygwin/bin' before 'windows/system32' in PATH).

Also check 'shell-file-name ' and try play with:

  (setq shell-file-name (concat exec-directory "cmdproxy.exe"))

or like

  (setq shell-file-name "bash")
  (setq shell-command-switch "-c")

  (setenv "SHELL" shell-file-name)
