exit(1) does not set exit code in Windows?

hi
I'm trying to write a test-suite for MATLAB code. In my test script, I use exit(1) to be able to tell my build system (make) if the test failed. This works fine on Linux and MacOS. However, on Windows, the return code of MATLAB is always 0, even with the following
C:\Users\Kris>matlab -nodisplay -nosplash -nojvm -r "exit(1)"
C:\Users\Kris>echo %ERRORLEVEL%
0
Is this a bug, or do I misunderstand something? I'm using R2014b.

This question is a bit old, but for those who still have it, instead of calling the matlab.exe in &ltMATLAB root&gt/bin, call MATLAB.exe in &ltMATLAB root&gt/bin/&ltarch&gt. That is,
start /wait "%PROGRAMFILES%\MATLAB\R2017b\bin\win64\MATLAB.exe" -nodesktop -nosplash -r "exit(1)"
