I'm not suggesting you "go other places" for help.  I'm suggesting that
your questions aren't very "informed" and that there are resources at 
the Cygwin site that would help add some information for your benefit
and that of the list when you consult it.  I'm glad you did think of 
looking around some before consulting the list.  We encourage that.  But
when you do consult the list, you should fill us all in on the details 
of what you did, what the problem is, what you tried, and the places 
you've looked for help.  That helps limit the back-and-forth of low
content messages.  In particular, <> 
asks that all inquiries to this list *attach* the output of 
'cygcheck -srv', which is a good part of the reason that I directed 
you to this page in response to your first message.

OK, so you have a path problem.  Let's do this then.  

cd /bin; cygcheck -srv

Attach the output of this and send it to the list.
