NSTask Help needed

I am having some difficulty with NSTask. All I am trying to do is launch a task (actually "make"). The code works fine on MacOSX and in a mingw32 shell on Windows 2000. However, I am unable to get NSTask to launch anything in the native Windows command prompt. (My executable uses only the foundation classes and runs in a shell.)

Here is my code:

        NSTask *task = [NSTask new];
        [task setLaunchPath:@"make"];
        [task setArguments:[NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"-j",@"3", nil]];
        [task setCurrentDirectoryPath:folderName];
        [task launch];
        [task waitUntilExit];
        [task release];

Here is the error I get:

2004-07-16 17:30:36.186 bnetrun[3856] Error launching task: F:\GNUstep\Development\msys\1.0\bin\make.exe

Notice that if I attempt to launch another program I get the same error:

2004-07-16 17:31:36.196 bnetrun[3857] Error launching task: F:\GNUstep\Development\msys\1.0\bin\cmd.exe

Any help here would be greatly appreciated,
Todd Riley
