batch Taskkill in script task Edited

I've set up somthing that has to spawn child processes so I figured I'd chuck a few taskkills in. Surprise surprise they don't work - my build is hung. Is there a way around this? should it all be in bash? is there a different task I can run my script in? is this impossible and I should give up?



Background:
I'm trying to get exit codes. I run start /wait in a batch script. Line before that I spawn a child processes thats a killing script. It taskkills the start /wait program, should it not die alone. At the end I appended the names of every spawned process to a string and iterated through them to taskkill them all. Works a charm everytime outside of bamboo. This is all for testing executibles to have ok exit codes (0 and sometimes <0 ), some require multiple exes to talk to each other.

Whats happening:
A script runs ctest.
ctest tries to run the batch script as a ctest. Theres log output for starting the first ctest,  then the batch script is suppose to call a tool to make some log files but no files ever got made. It's still hung.
