I opened the cygwin terminal and got the usual shell prompt. I entered the "cd" or "ls" commands and got a command not found error. I echoed
$PATH and saw that the path didn't look correct (which is why I assume the commands couldn't be found). I would have expected to see /usr/bin and
/usr/local/bin in the path somewhere. I didn't try giving the full path to these commands to see if the commands would have worked (I assume they
would, but will confirm tonight).
I opened an Explorer session and went to C:\cygwin\bin and I could see the ls.exe and cygcheck.exe files were present so I presumed the issue was
with the $PATH not being set correctly.

I got the command not found error when I tried to run cygcheck from the shell. Stupidly, I didn't try with the full path to the file in the shell.
I did open a windoz cmd window and ran the cygcheck command. There were errors (which I didn't bother to record of course). I will repeat this
attempt and send the results this evening.
