The requested information was not provided, but MSDN clearly says it's forbidden for programs to set startinfo.lpTitle, unless the program creates a new console. So I am making the requested change, and I am closing the bug.

Could you perhaps show a minimal Makefile that reproduces the problem?

Also, is this a 64-bit build of Make or a 32-bit build? If this is a 64-bit build, which compiler was used to build it?

The make fails when tries to launch temporary .bat file. The CreateProcess() in sub_proc.c returns error:
// MessageText:
// Invalid access to memory location.

If comments line startInfo.lpTitle = shell_name ? shell_name : exec_path; issue is not observed.
