If I invoke the script like:
things work pretty well. However if I invoke it as

are in both cases the same and are not relevant for the problem (I
In the first scenario, the prompt does not reappear till the script is
completed (this may be several minutes).
In the second scenario, the prompt returns much earlier but I also get
compilation errors. If I check the Windows taskmanager, then the
Microsoft compiler is still consuming close to 100% of the processor,
but it will end in due time.
Why does in the 2nd scenario the Microsoft compiler runs in the
background (at least that is my idea what is happening) while the 1st
scenario behaves as I expect/want?
