This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin DLL.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version. The most recent version *should*
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution. Rebooting is also suggested if you
are unable to find another cygwin DLL.
Unfortunately, this is not a problem, per se, within mkshortcut itself.
It's a system issue; make sure there are no other cygwin1.dll's on your
system or in your $PATH. Finally, you could try manually running
rebaseall in your 64bit installation, and then rebooting.
