Re: path dependent on drive in cygwin

I have noticed that the path variable for our build user is dependent on
where "cmd /C" is run from.
Please see below - I have cut back the PATH so that it does not overwhelm.
Notice the extra C; before the non cygwin entries. And when run from e
drive, the C; remains but the c: becomes e:. And this is the problem - the
path when run from c is messy but works. The path when run from e (which is
where we do run from) does not work.

Can anyone explain this. I guess one way round this is to explicitly call
the necessary programs without relying on PATH. But interested why this

I think we need to see your path in Windows and your cygcheck output.
Start cmd.exe and send the results of "PATH".
