Running bc by itself gave the same error message.
Just in case that bc was not part of cygwin, I deleted it and reran the
install. It did not seem to have bc listed as a component to install.
My PATH is now:
Files/NVIDIA Corporation/NVIDIA NvDLISR:/cygdrive/c/Program Files
If bc is not in cygwin, what should I use to get a version for Windows?
Or do I need to roll my own?
