Sorry for not being precise.

The environment is Win 2000.
The make version is GNU Make version 3.78.1 for windows
With foreground I mean that the window has focus and is on top of my
With background I mean the window is behind another window.

I can solve the problem by go into Windows - System - Advanced -
Performance options
and set to optimize for background services, but I dont want to use that
solution as
I normaly want my foreground progrom to run with highest speed.
I can not see any Window settings that will allow just a single cmd shell
to run with higher priority.

What does *** error 128 mean..

What background?

What environment?

Whose binary distribution of make?
