None of the above affects DOS/cmd.exe/command.com functionality. It controls

Works fine for me. The obvious question is, are you in the directory with

That's a DOS/Windows question, not a Cygwin one. So it's really off-topic
here. However, there is no need to "set" anything for Windows to treat
file names in a case insensitive way. It does that already (and really
won't treat them any other way at the cmd/command prompt). Your problem
must actually be caused by something else on your machine.
