The method I use is to define CYGWIN_NOWINPATH=1 before I start
cygwin. Actually, I set it in my Windows User environment so it is
always set for my user. You can find the old windows path as the value
of the environment variable ORIGINAL_PATH. Then, when necessary, I add
only the previous path components that I require back in my
.bash_profile. In my cases,My path looks like:
$ echo $PATH
In your case, you may have Plex in your path. Make sure any Plex
related directories are not in your cygwin path.
A Google (or similar) search for "CYGWIN_NOWINPATH" will find many
pages on cygwin.com and stackoverflow.com.
