Hi, I've been using gcc and other tools in older versions of cygwin with 32-bit Windows XP and Vista from windows command prompt (cmd.exe) without problems. But now I'm using 64-bit Windows 7, and some command line tools like gcc.exe do not work anymore (from cmd.exe). They do work ok from Cygwin's bash.
The message I get when trying to run gcc in cmd.exe is: "Access is denied." Anyway, only some tools don't work, e.g. 'ls' works ok from cmd.exe. I noticed that all cygwin tools that are actually symbolic links to somehere else (just like /bin/gcc.exe and some others) are the problematic tools. Also /bin/gcc.exe has System rights (as seen by Attrib command of windows), while tools that do work have only Archive rights. So the I guess the problem is related to how symbolic links are created and with what rights. Anyone else tried this? Any solutions?
