I have been using for some time the DJGPP tools under Windows 95/98.

In a certain script, I launched MSACCESS with the following command :
start /W c:/Program Files/.../MSACCESS.EXE
(/W wait for the MSACCESS to finish before continuing the script : this
behaviour is mandatory in my script)

This works fine under Windows 95/98 because start.exe is an external
command, but under NT, start is an internal command of cmd.exe

Does anyone know how to get the same behaviour under NT
