window command in bash

I have a window command that I want to execute in a bash script.

In my .bat file the command is 

	AgBackup.exe /notext c:\Alligate\agbackupfiles

I tried to executye this command in a bash window and the command works but
is does not seem to recognize the parameters. The "c:\alligate...." is the
path where a backup is written. In the bash script the backup file is
written in the default location.

I change the c:\Alligate.... to /cygdrive/c/Alligate/agbackupfiles but still
it wrote the backup file to the default location.

If I execute the .bat that the above command is in, it works correctly.

In a shell script what is the proper way to pass parameters to a window
