Fortunately, the workaround for this is simple: use the cygwin command line in 
just the way a Unix E user would run E programs from their command line.

I recommend adding the above scripts directory to your PATH -- the magic shell 
variable containing the list of directories to search to find the program to 
be executed. Given that your E installation directory is "c:\erights.org", as 
indicated by your error message above, and if your cygwin installation is like 
mine, then you should put the following line in the appropriate startup script 
(~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile):


After you've done that, launch a new cygwin window. You should now be able to type

     $ eBrowser.e-swt

to launch eBrowser. Or you can launch eBrowser to edit a particular file by 
saying, for example

     $ eBrowser.e-swt hypercube.e

If anyone has problems with this, please let me know. Thanks.
