        Right.  It has the two files I mentioned below, and
nc.exe isn't a text file or makefile -- but is shown by the
cygwin "file" command as an executable.

You said:
I don't see the PE32+ executable (console) x86-64, for MS Windows
>>> string.

Whereas, when I used the file command, it printed out exactly
what you were searching for.  Thus my assertion that your file
command is the likely culprit.

file /usr/bin/nc
/usr/bin/nc: PE32+ executable (console) x86-64 (stripped to external PDB),
for MS Windows

As for the not-executable error message, have you checked,
as suggested elsewhere, whether or not you have some cheap
anti-virus installed that blocks programs that are not viruses
like 'nc'?
