First, thanks for your suggestion. The program captures the output via
pipes and used the DuplicateHandle winapi function to create a handle
from StdOut for StdErr. So I suppose both child handles write to the
same pipe. To test this I added " 2>&1" to the commandline to redirect
stderr output to stdout, but the output did not change.
To test if another error did change the output I changed the password on
the commandline and the exitcode did not change. I tried to execute a
batch file with "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C C:\test.bat" and it
failed too with exitcode 128. So it doesn't have anything to do with the
svn client.

Then I found this article:

Seems a security issue. This now seems logical to me as it runs
correctly stand alone but fails from the scheduler wich is a kind of
service. Maybe the program is started from the service with limited
rights and the console I try to start with CreateProcess from the
program inherits those limited rights and therefore fails.

Back to the drawing board :-)

Kind regards,
