I'm getting similar errors (see link below) but only on Windows 10 with Cygwin 64.

You seem to have omitted the link.

When I use Cygwin emacs instead of FSF emacs I do not get this error on Windows 10.
Unfortunately, Cygwin emacs does not allow me to make extensive use of my my environment variables embedded in file path/names like the windows version of FSF emacs does. This is a major problem!

What do you mean by "environment variables embedded in file path/names"?

I do not get this error with windows 8 and Cygwin32.

Do you think installing cygwin32 on Windows 10 would solve the problem? If it does not solve the problem, can I uninstalling cygwin32 by just deleting c\:Cygwin?

Has this been reported as a bug? Has any progress been made on fixing it?

I can't make much sense out of what you wrote, but I'm responding as Cygwin's emacs maintainer. Is there some emacs problem I can help you with? If so, please make a complete, self-contained report.
