The reason for needing to run within Cygwin is because we have a complex shell script that sets the user environment to run the application.

Wilfried I think you miss the point of Bill's need and these items you
point to are a bit old as in maintenance appears lacking.  Last file
date for win-bash was 2011 and for gnuwin32 was 2010.

Bill needed to instruct others using Cygwin how to operate with a native
application.  There is no dependence on bash or other scripting language
on Bill's behalf.
