Ah, you can't get it to work, so the whole thing should be scrapped.

I for one am thankful it's nothing like a genuine windows app (it 
works).

Many reasons.  Some are forced for various reasons to have windows as 
the native OS on the hardware in front of them, but need the basic unix 
toolkit to make the computer usable.

If you'd really like to make it work, head over to the xastir list, or 
get some cygwin help.

This thread is off topic, and degrading into OS wars. I'm dropping it 
here.
