Sure Brian, but bash.exe is present nowhere but in my
cygwin\bin directory, and bash doesn't work. I agree
with you that my computer is kind of a mess but I
don't think this is the root cause. Actually, i've set
up my environment variable with cygwin\bin in the
first position of my path and it doesn't change

Thanks for your help anyway.
