I've nothing to add to Paul's exellent answer - at the end of the day,
someone has to call CreateProcess[Ex](), as that is the only Windows API
call to do it.

I don't think that is true.  Python's os.popen() explicitly uses COMSPEC so
that some vague shell semantics are maintained, but CreateProcess is the
raw, low-level API that creates exactly what you ask.
