Anyone can try this very easily by just double clicking on the Cygwin
icon or typing (e.g.) c:\cygwin\bin\ls.exe .  These would illustrate
cygwin binaries being started by CreateProcess.

You undoubtedly did not fill out some field or argument correctly when
invoking CreateProcess.  It's difficult to know exactly what might be
wrong since you didn't provide any details.
