I suggest you experiment with using the Windows start command, e.g. try

(setq latex-run-command "start mylatex.bat")

I find this is necessary in some cases and not others; for example, I have

tex-dvi-view-command's value is "start yap \"*\""

on my Win NT system, although nothing else related to MiKTeX seems to need
start on this machine.

For details of the start command, enter start/? at a DOS prompt.

I also *strongly* recommend that you upgrade to Emacs 21.3.
