As mentioned, your path in bash does not include "." by default so you need
to add it or use "./Hello".  David, this seems like good FAQ fodder to me...

Well no, it doesn't mean that you *have* to run the program from the Cygwin

you need to make sure that the PATH that DOS sees has Cygwin1.dll in it.
