# Re: Cygwin 1.7.x on Windows 7: Exit statuses of Win32 executables are sometimes wrong

Hi Edward,

Yeah, I forgot to mention that I tried scripting it in a batch file outside cygwin in much the same way as your script, and it ran for a day or two without fail. I can keep that going for longer just in case it fails less frequently, but I don't think it's a Windows / MSVCRT bug.
