I don't have a solution, but I have a suggestion for a work-around.

I never need to run programs this way; perhaps there are other ways to
get emacs to run the programs, rather than explictly invoking them.

For example, I run Yap to view LaTeX docs. I use the following
Makefile snippet to do that:

%.view : %.dvi
        cygstart $<

make foo.view

Yap registers itself in the Windows registry, so cygstart knows to run
Yap for a .dvi file.

Hope this helps.
