If you run notepad from the commandline, it starts the process and then
returns to the commandline, which you can prevent with 'start /wait notepad'.
This behaviour is AFAIK standard for all windows applications (as opposed to
console applications) under MS Windows. If EditPadPro behaves differently, I
guess that the executable is in fact only a wrapper that starts the real
editor and then terminates. You will have to ask the vendor of that tool
if/how you can wait.

The default encoding probably has nothing to do with it.
