Crash on RevealInFinder when building a project in headless mode



Reproduction steps:
1. Setup a headless Windows machine
2. Setup the “repro” project
3. Run the Editor with: "C:\Program Files\Unity\Hub\Editor\<version>\Editor\Unity.exe" -batchmode -buildTarget StandaloneWindows64 -quit -projectPath </path/to/repro/project> -executeMethod BuildScript.BuildWindows

Expected results: Project is built
Actual results: Unity Editor crashes

Not reproducible with: 2021.3.24f1

Reproduced on: Windows 10

* CQA did not reproduce this issue, as we didn’t set up a headless machine for this bug report
* All the bug information was provided by the bug reporters
* As per the bug reporter, this issue didn’t happen in 2021.3.24f1, so a regression happened somewhere between it and 2021.3.27f1

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 6000.0.0f1):

    Fixed so that Finder/Explorer will no longer open in batch mode. Please ensure that -batchmode is provided on the command line when running batch mode, especially on headless systems.

    I assumed my case was caused by other environment changes at the same time, but I did upgrade from 2022.3.11 to 2022.3.21 if that helps narrow it down

    Also the title says headless but from what I've read "-batchmode" doesn't assume headless and only suppress windows that require _interaction_, but when Unity is running in a service context (on windows) the OS is going to block some more stuff.
