This is weird
I couldn't find it in my search of the site;
I was on a XP64 machine and tried to run the defrag command from the Cygwin shell and it could not locate the command. I could see the command via the cmd shell. Below I cd usng the cmd shell on 64bit XP and using ls it is not seen and dir it is seen:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>ls |grep defrag
C:\WINDOWS\system32>dir |grep defrag
02/16/2007 08:33 PM 35,840 defrag.exe
I then copied the file in the cmd shell to c:\cygwin\ and then Cygwin can see it there:
dobrin@dodo:/c/WINDOWS/system32> ls -al ./defrag
ls: cannot access ./defrag: No such file or directory
dobrin@dodo:/c/WINDOWS/system32> cd /
dobrin@dodo:/> ls -al ./defrag
-rwx------+ 1 dobrin Domain Users 35840 Feb 16 2007 ./defrag
I confirmed that this isn't an issue on XP32 or Vista
Yes. Call up a 32-bit cmd prompt and repeat the same tests.
You'll see the same results. The 32-bit world cannot see the
64-bit world. In other words, this is not Cygwin specific.
