>This ticket concerns the WinGRASS and OSGEO4W versions on Windows Vista (x64).
>I had problems executing grass commands that are batch files. I tested some variants in the grass command shell and it seems that there is a problem with the >/msys/sh.exe. I tried the latest version that is available on the MSYS/MinGW website and that solved my problems. The shipped version with OSGEO4W is >"Snapshot-2007.01.19-1", the currently available is "Production Release". My notes are available on the mailing list.
>Issues in the GUIs: No menu opened for the commands. The log showed error messages like 
>      Traceback (most recent call last):
>      File "C:/GRASS/etc/wxpython/wxgui.py", line 521, in
>      OnMenuCmd
>     menuform.GUI().ParseCommand(cmd, parentframe=self)
>     File "C:\GRASS\etc\wxpython\gui_modules\menuform.py", line
>    1812, in ParseCommand
>    xml.sax.parseString(getInterfaceDescription(cmd[0]).decode(e

>    383 [main] sh.exe" 3288 sync_with_child: *** child state waiting for

> This lead me to the conclusion that there were problems with the shell program itself.
