Well, that is a commercial command-shell replacement… if it doesn’t work maybe raise an issue with them regarding compatibility?
And yes it is one of the ugliest hack I’ve ever done, and that says a lot [1]. Unfortunately Windows batch files are still the most “compatible” way of doing stuff like this without extra dependencies. But it does require occasional hacks due to its limitations.

The aim of luawinmake is to just build Lua. It auto-detects the Lua version from the source code. It works for Lua 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3 (5.4 is available as a separate branch). And it works with all common compilers available for Windows (also auto-detected).

So a PR would be most welcome :)

[1] unfortunately about more of my code than just luawinmake :)
