Great Óscar! Thank you. :-)

(Even though I couln't even type C-x C-c any more, had to close emacs
 from the menu. :-) )

Unfortunately even winpty is not working for

$ winpty ./emacsclient.exe -nw 

it still opens a new frame!?  At least with emacs-28.0.91 build from
Corwin (there are warning, two DLLs are missing).  If you think it is
worthwhile to check with Emacs-27.2, I'll do this tomorrow?
