New User question

I've checked the docs, faq and google, but can't find an exact answer...

I have a program vic that transmits/receives video over a multicast network connection. The program runs fine when I'm in cygwin, but the larger package I am using expects it to run in windows. So to make the integration work, I'd like to find a way to run cygwin and my vic program then have the cygwin environment quit when I quit the vic program. My first guess was;
c:cygwin\bin>cygwin vic
but I get an error: cannot execute binary file
I also tried
c:cygwin\bin>bash vic
and got the same error.

I'm hoping I've explained what I want to do clearly. If more info is needed, please let me know. I know this a roundabout way to get this done, but the source is not available.
