permission denied problem

Mon Dec 29 20:06:00 GMT 2008

I am running cygwin on vista.

Recently I downloaded the gnupg installer and tried to run it in cygwin
bash, but got this message:
$ ./gnupg-w32cli-1.4.9.exe 
bash: ./gnupg-w32cli-1.4.9.exe: Permission denied

If I run the same command the native cmd.exe window, the installer runs
(after windows prompt me for administrator password) ok.

Can someone explain the difference here?  I thought I could use cygwin bash
to launch native windows applications.  Thanks!
