Bug Description

--- problem
… only exists when trying to open a command prompt window, to run something there. For normal GUI applications (browsers, editors, …) it seems to work.

*************** workaround
edit and save script in IDE, but run from commandline in parallel ;-)
… or make some experiments with Python subprocess.Popen()
----------------------------------

I am using Java 8 and SikuliX 1.1.4 IDE. I have a test script that uses App.open to run a Windows batch script that launches a program. If I run the test script from the Windows command line it launches the tool from the batch script, however, if I run the same test script from the IDE, the tool is not launching. This works fine in both the IDE and the command line when using SikuliX 1.1.0
