I want to use Cygwin to access all Windows applications installed on my
Windows 7 system. The Problem is that Windows is using spaces in its
environment variable 'Path' and Cygwin can not handle the spaces. Is
there a way to use the Windows environment variable 'Path' even with
spaces in it? For Example I want to start x86 sbt via Cygwin, then I
will get the following error message: "/cygdrive/c/Program Files
(x86)/sbt/bin/sbt: line 61: /sbt-launch-lib.bash: No such file or
directory". But when I try it with the default Windows cmd it works.
Thought about something like iterating over the 'Path' environment
variable in bashrc and adapt the strings to fit for Cygwin. But I don't
know how I can access the Windows environment variables and how I could
provide the adapted environment variable to Cygwin.
Someone an idea how I could solve this issue?
