So you've built your binary from source? With what compiler? With what configuration options?

Perhaps your background process is taking too long to spawn the child before the wait timer event is exhausted.

Does this build, work better for you?

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?

I have a problem when I run make in the background.
I get
    make.exe: *** [foo] Error 128

When I run the same makefile in foreground it works just fine.

Any idea of how I can solve this.
I actually switched to gnu make to solve this problem.

Kind regards
